I’m so happy you all enjoyed my last post on beginner sewing books. I hope that if you’re just beginning to sew, or thinking about starting, that you found something to help you!
As promised, I’ve compiled a list of intermediate/more advanced sewing books and books on pattern drafting together with my friend Casey, that I think you will find really helpful if you already know how to sew and are looking for more challenges, to up your skill or want to delve into more complex techniques.
Get it here:: Couture Sewing Techniques
Get it here:: The Art of Manipulating Fabric
Get it here:: Professional Sewing Techniques for Designers
Get it here:: Fit for Real People
Once you get really serious, you may want to learn how to draft your own patterns. In my opinion, this is where things get really exciting!
Get it here:: Patternmaking for Fashion Design
Get it here:: How to Make Sewing Patterns
Get it here:: Metric Pattern Cutting for Women’s Wear
Get it here:: How to Use, Adapt, and Design Sewing Patterns
