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 ( ) Useful, convenient CD that minimizes its ecological footprint by conserving paper Printed in the USA

This volume contains all of the patterns from the previous 3 books, and several new ones. They can be printed at home if you are willing to put a little work into it (there are instructions for this in the book). The designs are simple but can be embellished to an extraordinary degree following the instructions in the book. You can sew them by machine if you like, although the handsewing instructions are easy to follow and work wonderfully.

Simple clothing stitched entirely by hand (although a sewing machine can be used), with complete illustrated instructions and patterns on CD-ROM.
