Colette Sewing Handbook Blog Tour

I am delighted today to be part of the Colette Sewing Handbook blog tour! I saw a copy early on, shortly before it was released, and not only is it extensively easy on the eyes, it really is filled with clear, concise explanations for some of the core sewing techniques necessary to sew clothing you’ll be proud to wear. Sarai’s voice is both friendly and wise, and I love that her clear philosophy of sewing comes through on every page.

Take a sec and check out the phone interview I did with Sarai, along with a sneak preview of the book–which includes five exclusive patterns to sew–along with other Colette patterns (all available here).

Oh, and don’t forget to enter the giveaway for a copy of the Colette Sewing Handbook PLUS five patterns of your choice, to be given away December 5!

    I’ve got the book on order, but its not available in Europe until November 25th ( boo…I should have ordered it from instead..) I ” attended” the webinar which I found very informative and I would love to win the giveaway. You got me totally addicted to Sarai’s fabulous patterns we made the blouse in the Fall Wardrobe e-Course.

    Love the interview!! I have realized how important good fabric selection really is.
