Sew U Home Stretch

The Built by Wendy Guide to Sewing Knit Fabrics
By Wendy Mullin, Eviana Hartman (Hardcover Book, 2008)
Looking to give your wardrobe some pizzazz? Start sewing! Like knitting before it, sewing is being reclaimed by a new generation, one that celebrates individual creativity.
Fresh on the heels of her first book, Sew U, which focused on sewing with woven fabrics, Wendy will now teach the creatively inclined how to make perfect t-shirts, dresses, and hoodies, all with soft knit fabric. She'll take your sewing to the next level, providing step-by-step instructions (both for sewing with a serger and without) and patterns directly from her own studio. And with tips on how to alter T-shirts and clothes you already have, you'll soon be revamping all your clothes to make fabulous custom creations.

  • Praise for Sew U:

    "Sew U is undoubtedly the most comprehensive DIY sewing guide on the market, chock-full of everything Home Ec never taught you . . . Sew U will inspire a new generation of thread bearers to dust off their moms' machines and march straight to the fabric store." ---Rose Annis, Bust

  • "From stitches to britches, this democratic how-to guide defies the laws laid down in stodgy sewing books of yesteryear. Mullin, with the help of writer Eviana Hartman, imparts her seamless wisdom on basic fabrics, machine functions, patterns and cuts. . . . Clever and digestible." ---Kirsten Fleming, New York Post

  • "Refreshingly conversational, no-nonsense prose . . . Sew U is so inspiring that you're virtually guaranteed to be kicking around town in your own creations in no time."---April Long, Nylon
