French Twist.




J'adore this new sewing book (about now you're saying, "wow, girl, again with the sewing?") I found recently, Simple Sewing With a French Twist. It's a really very imaginative and easy to follow sewing guide, full of beautiful patterns from Celine Dupuy, a regular contributor to Marie Claire magazine. With pages of really gorgeous photographs and simple line drawings to guide you, it's some very inspiring eye candy, indeed.




Here's a glimpse inside the pages of the many pretty, pretty pictures. I'm still trying to figure out where I might fit this hammock in my apartment (perhaps, over the tub? is that weird?).

I love this book! I even bought it at full price, which I never do. It is one of my favorite books of all time. I love to just look through it, the pictures are so inspiring and beautiful.

I own this book and want to make all the projects in it. (I don't know how to sew.) But it even provides directions for beginners like me, and all the directions are illustrated in what appears to be a simplified way.

Great find - I'll have to check it out, maybe it will inspire me to pick up sewing.

I swoon! Must. Learn. To. Sew. When I get a machine, I'm getting this book. Maybe I'll just get the book and pretend I have a machine.

I have this and love it -- the fabrics are beautiful!

Enjoy it -- if you're like me, you'll get lost in it over and over again.

Love your site and the daily inspiration it provides.

This book has been an object of my book lust for some time now. That beret? Must make.

Yup, I got this book last winter and I love it! I already know mostly how to sew, but the illustrations make learning sooo easy, and her ideas for little projects are great.
