Synopsis

Scandinavian fashion has long been admired for its stylish, clean-lined cuts and aesthetic. Breaking the Pattern is the first authentic dressmaking book that showcases the beauty of Scandinavian style.
 
Complete with stunning photography, clear illustrations and instructions, this book shows you how to create a coherent capsule wardrobe - complete with a collection of 20 garments that are easy to make, wear and combine with each other.
 
The Finnish sewing duo behind the dressmaking fashion label Named, Laura and Saara offer up an enticing selection of tops, dresses, skirts, and trousers for the modern seamstress. You will build your skills as you work through the book and with plenty of variations suggested for each garment, there's lots of room for you to add your own personal touches and quirks to each design.   
 
Taking you beyond the patterns featured in this book, Breaking the Pattern will inspire you not only to build your sewing repertoire but also to grow in confidence with your own sewing.
 
Six full-size pattern sheets are included in this neat package. The patterns are in a range of sizes from UK sizes 8 to 22 (34 to 50 EUR sizes), with concise information on measuring yourself and finding the perfect fit.
 

About the Publisher

Quadrille Publishing

Quadrille Publishing

It was in 1994 that Quadrille Publishing announced itself to the world, a team of four with a dream: the creation of a small list of books that would innovate in every way, editorial, design, production and sales, stay in print for many years, and be sold the world over. Two whole (long) decades later, how the world has changed, yet our goal remains. Our new list reflects these aims. Our craft list is heralded by our second The Great British Sewing Bee TV tie-in book, Sew Your Own Wardrobe, packed wtih desirable projects and packaged with five full-size pattern sheets - a first for a TV tie-in. Love at First Stitch by Tilly Walnes, herself a contestant in the first The Great British Sewing Bee, is a brilliant introduction to the world of sewing, full of glorious must-have garments and already attracting wide interest, The Cath Kidston Sewing Book is a dazzling follow up to the most successful craft book ever in the UK, Sew!
