Discovery of the Month
Named Clothing uses a high-fashion approach to their patterns, and this translates well into their first book. Saara and Laura Huhta—yes, they are sisters—are gifting you 20 garments, each boasting “a modern way to sew.” Their book gives a strong nod to Finnish design, including essentials like jeans, a modern coat, and a bag. Many of the other patterns are designed with several versions, such as a skirt that can also be sewn as a pinafore, and options for a dress, jumpsuit, and top, all in one pattern.
The only downside to this book is that you might wish that all of your pattern instructions included color photographs, full-page illustrations, and detailed explanations of must-have sewing skills.
