First things first, discover your body shape, where we have all the measurements and info you need. Then, why not start with one of your three included Butterick patterns? We have stitchy tips and tricks plus a whole host of fabric ideas that’ll have you stitching up a new favourite in no time.
Once you’ve read all about figure-flattering styles, learned how to draft your own pattern, been introduced to designer Gretchen Hirsch, and caught up with our stitchy bloggers, take a look at our pick of projects. You’ll find we have skirts galore, including an elegant pencil, pretty pleats and a very retro circle skirt. We also have a range of no-pattern makes, including a midi skirt and a one-size-fits-all top.
Try your hand at embroidery on with our detailed blouse, then team it with a silky kimono or a pair of palazzo pants. To complete your handmade collection, store your favourite piece away in the beautiful garment carrier on page 104. So grab the measuring tape, raid your stash and get making beautiful outfits to celebrate your figure.
