When you're curvy or plus size, it can be hard finding clothes that fit well and express your personality - but learning to sew can also be intimidating, especially if you're not in the size range of most beginner sewing patterns.

Start with core skills, from threading a sewing machine, to understanding sewing patterns, and measuring yourself accurately, and then once you've mastered the basic techniques, learn how to put them to the test, and sew your first garment - one you will love to wear, because it's designed for bodies just like yours. By the end of this book, you'll be able to sew clothes with ease and confidence, in any style or fabric, that fit and express your unique style.
