about

Alabama Studio Sewing Patterns: A Guide to Customizing a Hand-Stitched Alabama Chanin Wardrobe by Natalie Chanin is a companion to the Alabama Studio Series: Alabama Stitch Book, Alabama Studio Style, and Alabama Studio Sewing + Design. In this final volume of the four-book series, Chanin offers, by popular demand, three new core patterns—the A-Line Dress/Tunic/Top, the Long and Short Wrap Skirt, and the Classic Coat/Jacket/Cardigan—and a guide to customizing garments to fit and flatter. For ease, convenience, and to ease its ecological footprint, this book comes with a CD rather than paper patterns. The disc contains patterns for all of the garments from the previous books in the Alabama Studio series with additional sizing for XXL, the three new patterns, plus five Alabama Chanin stencil designs, including the Polka Dot in three sizes, the popular New Leaves, and the classic Magdalena (all for readers to print as needed for their individual sewing purposes). Printed and bound in the USA.

This installment highlights: 
  • 9 core garment patterns with up to 34 standard variations, plus 3 bonus pocket patterns
  • Patterns from the entire Alabama Studio book series with the additional XXL size
  • 5 full-scale stencil designs, plus a free bonus download available from Alabama Chanin’s website (http://alabamachanin.com/resources/large-scallops-stencil-artwork)
  • Useful, convenient CD that minimizes its ecological footprint by conserving paper
  • Printed in the USA

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Extremely Useful Book! This is my second book from Alabama Chanin - I also have Alabama Studio Sewing + Design. If you don't have any of the series, then this book covers everything you need to know about sewing an AC garment; although there are a few things covered in both books, there's plenty of new information. I've taken courses in pattern drafting and draping, and have always had difficulties with it despite having all the textbooks to refer to. I found the Alabama Chanin instructions much more useful than anything I've read to date - I think it must be the down-to-earth way in which it's presented that's finally made it easier for me to understand! There's also some very good information on how to modify standard sewing patterns for hand sewing. What I especially loved about this new book is that they show models of different body shapes, sizes and ages, and how beautiful all those women look in their handcrafted garments. Many thanks to Alabama Chanin for producing yet another book that is a delight to look at, and with so many different ideas to inspire for MANY years to come. ❤
