Overall Rating
Turn a simple sweatshirt into wearable art with "Stylish Sweatjackets." Designer and author Fran Morgan makes designing jackets easy, fun, and best of all, economical! The 10 projects in this book involve lessons in sweatshirt preparation, edge-finishing tips, and techniques for sewing with knit fabric. Learn how simple it is to make clinched waists, pleated side seams, cuffs, collars, shoulder pleats, frog closures, V-necks, and more--each focusing on just the right fit for you. With the "jacket" part already made, the exciting step is in the designing. Here are some great reasons to include this book in your library:
1. Recycle an old sweatshirt.
2. Sweatjackets are fashionable, comfortable, and tailored for just the right fit.
3. Each project teaches a new technique, with clear step-by-step directions, diagrams, and photos.
4. No special sewing machine and attachments are needed.
5. Sweatjackets can be worn almost any time of year.
6 Sweatjackets make great gifts.

A disappointing book. The Sweatshirt on the cover suggests innovation....the book does not deliver. (Posted on 9/3/09)
