Meet my new favorite book, Simple Sewing with a French Twist by the popular Parisian designer, C?line Dupuy. Her work is regularly featured in Marie Claire magazine and her portfolio can be viewed on her website. Simple Sewing with a French Twist showcases C?line’s talents offering all of us a glimpse into her stylish world.
It does much more than delight the eyes. It provides the necessary tools to jump right in and create our very own Paris right at home with over 50 projects for all levels – from ohmygodwhatwasIthinking beginner to beentheredonethat advanced. It offers clear instructions, illustrated patterns, and images of the completed project that encourage you to take your idea from your head to the work table.
I love her eye, from the things she creates and how beautifully she styles them, giving everything such care and consideration, paying close attention to each detail without coming across too fussy… Absolutely beautiful. Lots of great patterns to sew up for your home, from placemats to pillows, as well as fashion accessories (love the totes), gifts, and super creative customizing ideas for your furniture (i.e. the buttons sewn on the back of this chair below. What a fantastic idea.) Here are some images from the book for a sneak peak.
This title is in English and is also available in French. Simple Sewing with a French Twist is exquisite on every level, a real gem for crafty girls everywhere and only $18!
