The Great Put on : Sew Something Smashing!


What a wonderful visual idea book this is. If you’re not inspired to try at least one new technique after looking/reading, you’ve missed the entire concept behind THE GREAT PUT ON. This is Lois Ericson’s 12th textile/sewing book, & it’s her best yet! The chapters are on various topics, i.e. design, sleeves, collars, pockets, closures, hems, linings, patterns & techniques. 208 pages full of inspiration & ideas to make your sewing projects worth a second look! There are 50 pages of techniques… with emphasis on various ways of manipulating fabric–gathering, pleating, tucking, piecing, cording, quilting & wrinkling. Embellishing suggestions include beading, embroidering, braiding, lacing, piping & using buttons & other found objects. Nearly every page of THE GREAT PUT ON has either line drawings or black & white photos artistically combined with text. There are also 16 pages of colorful jackets & vests to whet the appetite for sewing something smashing! Also look for Lois’ new book WHAT GOES AROUND (a belt book) that will be available late fall ’92. EXPRESSIONS…is an 85 minute Video that shows how to turn ordinary fabrics into extraordinary creations that will definitely make your sewing projects special. (ISBN 0-911985-08-5, $42 p.p.).
