    I really love the patterns in this book. I have had great success with the alterations with me as a beginner… however my issue is that it does not tell you what type of fabric to use. It only tells what type of fabric to use with the first skirt. I also have the Modern Vintage book and I really like that it gives fabric suggestions. I really have a specific shirt that I want to make from the sewing handbook but I am unsure of the fabric to purchase. It is the shirt with the peplum attached. Can anyone suggest what fabric to purchase?

    Hi, I received my copy of the book 2 days ago but it has only 3 master pattern sheets. The blouse & the dress pattern sheets were missing. I want to confirm if it should have 5 master patterns as mentioned on the book cover. I have requested for a replacement already.

    Hello— I want to let you know about something that I think is missing from the pattern sheets that are included w/ the physical copy— the back facing piece for the blouse. Couldn’t find it on the blouse/skirt sheet— or anywhere for that matter. Making Novita’s variation which calls for a back facing but it’s nowhere to be found. Anyway, made my own but please revise or let me know where that facing can be found :)

    Thanks! Meg
