    One thought on “Alabama Studio Sewing + Design: A Guide to Hand-Sewing an Alabama Chanin Wardrobe”

    1. I picked up and put down this book a great deal over two years Then, finally, I jumped in with both feet I now have six Chanin style tops, three dresses, and the list of sturdily hand stitched items keeps growing The esthetic definitely grows on you perhaps a direct correlation to the embroidery becoming easier The patterns are flattering, feminine, and easy to alter The photos are luminous and inspiring.

    2. ABSOLUTELY STUNNING I couldn t put it down Will startling for materials and plan to tart with the previous book in January.

    3. I love everything about the Alabama Chanin business model, philosophy and clothes I have made one pattern thus far and very happy with the results Included are patterns and all of the sewing techniques to create your own handsewn piece There are lots of images of finished pieces including all the techniques used to make them I find that this is couture that I can really relate to, couture out of organic cotton jersey.

    4. This has to be the best Alabama Studio book yet I actually truly can t wear their styles, and still they are inspiring The stenciling, the stitching, the beading those have to be transferable to other things.

    5. I enjoyed this book the most of all of her books She repeats much of the information from her other books but takes each idea a step further and allows room for variation and imagination.Wonderful ideas and execution.

    6. a great book to just look at for inspiration not all of the garments are things i would actually wear, but i ve tried a few of the hand stitching techniques and have lofty ambitions of trying some of the complicated reverse applique stuff lovely lovely stuff.

    7. I have two of her books and they are both full of inspiration I ve used three of her patterns from this book and they ve turned out well with minimal tweaking and found the hand sewing aspect surprisingly enjoyable It s good to slow down

    8. Absolutely outstanding, full of great tips and tricks, projects, ideas, and information If you can only have one of the three Alabama Chanin books, make it this inspiring volume.

    9. I love Alabama Studio however despite excellent directions this book has moved beyond my rudimentary stitching abilities Its beautiful couture if you will for the hand sewer

    10. Beautiful clothing designs with easy to understand directions I m planning on trying a few simple projects.
