THE BUSY WOMAN'S SEWING BOOK When your time to sew is limited, you must learn to sew smart: buy the right pattern, use time-saving techniques, and make a plan. Home economist and TV star Nancy Zieman is a busy woman who loves to sew, like you. In this book, she shows you the secrets of fast sewing. The key to saving time is to get organized and to use modern sewing techniques. Nancy shows you how to plan a season's wardrobe by perfecting one semi-lined jacket, one blouse and dress, and one skirt and slacks pattern. Wit this plan you can sew faster than you could shop. And best of all, your clothes will fit, be comfortable, complement you in your best colors, and cost less than ready-to-wear. In the process you will learn modern sewing techniques like how to sew faster and better with sergers and how to use the new fusible interfacings. Nancy also shares secrets used in ready-to-wear that have not been widely known to home sewers. In addition, she shows how to make expensive lingerie for pennies. Throughout the book are valuable hints from other home sewers on finding time to sew.
