I am buying this as I watch. Beautiful in its simplicity. The designs all have an understated elegance.
I’m a painter contractor in the US and eggshell is a type of sheen. Love this book and love your Pod cast. Keep up the great work.
I have purchased this book and it is superb. I love the clean simple lines of the designs.They are the sort of clothes one expects to find in high end fashion.The photography is stunning and the quality of the book is first rate.
Just subscribed to love sewing magazine and this book is a freebie with the magazine. So looking forward to receiving it.
it is in fact a very nice book with really classic garments and I almost refused it because your review gives totally wrong impression about the book. According to what you were showing, there are only frills, slits, ties… all the teenage staff that everybody is so tired about already and that for some unknown reason is considered “interesting”. Saying that frills are cool is about the same as calling racer-back original while it is everywhere for years and years and nothing could be more boring.
I love traceable patterns on decent weight paper, PDF patterns drive me mad, lol.
Thanks Kate, great review. Some beautiful patterns. Thanks for sharing as always x
I always smell books!!! this one is on my wishlist but i might not be able to wait until Christmas after your review 🙂
Thank you for that wonderful review! I thought about to buy the book, but now won’t, because I expected another style.
Lol actually eggshell gloss is a thing….. It’s a sheen option in paints.
In love sewing magazine issue 60 (out now-red background cover colour),they have this book free with a subscription to their magazine. Thanks for this,it’s really great to be able to see if a book patterns suits you.The quality looks stunning.
Love the look of this book certainly on my Christmas list.
Mine’s on the way, should arrive in a few days. I ordered it through Booktopia before it was released and it cost AUD $34.99 plus $6.50 shipping. Can’t wait for it to arrive!
it’s on my Christmas list, but now I’ve watched this I might have to order one asap – particularly like the top at the beginning
Love your book reviews , ! There one called sew Japanese , i think kids clothing thinking of getting maybe.
Is there a section in the book about increasing the pattern size for each pattern not just the basics page
i cant believe it!! As of this minute, this is now 25 quid to buy off amazon!! 🙁
Thanks for the review. I’m glad to see I’m not the only one that enjoys the smell of a good book lol. You mentioned UK size, would you happen to know what that would be US size?
Hi, thanks for the review! Do you know why it is called Breaking the pattern? I thought it would be full of possibilities how to adjust patterns or something like that.
