Specs & Details
The creator of 100 Acts of Sewing, Sonya Philip provides essential descriptions of tools and techniques, and four full-sized patterns in sizes XS–5X: a top, a shirt, a skirt, and pants. By the time you complete the four foundation pieces, you will know how to build your own wardrobe.
She includes modifications, adjustments, and extras to equip beginners and experienced sewists alike.
Jillian Moreno says it best: “Sonya Philip is a revolutionary. She has been sewing easy-to-wear and easy-to-love garments since the early days of the slow fashion movement. And from the start she has been a powerful advocate for the idea of a handmade wardrobe that prioritizes the celebration of our bodies. Since her own first stitches she has been generously and encouragingly sharing what she knows. So many fans of Sonya have been waiting for her to publish a book, and The Act of Sewing: How to Make and Modify Clothes to Wear Every Day is worth the wait. The Act of Sewing is equally an act of rebellion and act of self-love.”
