It’s sew simple—and sew pretty! Lena Santana has devised a collection of beautifully made sewing projects that serve as a perfect introduction to the craft. Armed with this comprehensive guide to choosing and using fabrics and a handy techniques section, beginners can master the skills in no time. And all of the projects require only basic materials and small amounts of fabric. Style up your summer wardrobe with a fashionable dress, cute culottes, or chic bikini. Create an ample-sized shoulder bag or a ruffled collar. It really is as easy as it sounds.
