Sew It Yourself – DIY Daisy
It’s time to start sewing with Sew It Yourself with DIY Daisy: 20 pattern-free projects (and infinite variations) to make your dream wardrobe.
When Daisy Braid started sewing, patterns were out of her budget so she just started DIYing! Sew It Yourself with DIY Daisy is a colourful, size-inclusive and inspiring book for sewers of all stages and abilities, beginners included. It includes guides on everything you need to get started (including equipment, materials and basic techniques) and step-by-step projects with clear instructions, photographs and illustrations that will take the scary out of sewing.
Daisy’s designs use simple shapes to create playful, classic and comfortable pieces that can be styled for all occasions, whether that’s a picnic date or a WFH day. The book features 10 small accessory projects and 10 more advanced clothing projects, each with a fun variation (but with potential for endless customisation). There’s no standard sizing – just your own body measurements – and no zips or buttons required! They also encourage intentional sewing practices, with projects that produce minimal waste and can even be made with leftover fabric scraps.
+ We tear our Liberty to achieve a line that follows the grain of the fabric - fabric edges may reflect this process.
+ Colour accuracy - When selecting fabrics please be aware that although we have scanned and colour corrected fabric images, every screen shows colours differently. If you are not sure, we recommend purchasing a sample card or minimum cut to ensure the fabric is what you expect. Linen sample cards can be found here. Liberty Solid fabric sample cards can be found here and patterned Liberty Tana Lawn is available in small cuts of 25cm.
Publisher Note: Balloon Sleeve Dress (Kama Top Variation) – Page 156 Oopsie! We forgot to include a ÷ 2 in the Bodice Width formula. Please refer to the Kama Top Bodice Formula on page 153 (It’s exactly the same)!
