    1. I honestly enjoy the information inside this book, Designing Clothes with the Flat Pattern Method by Sara Alm. It's actually what you would need to understand pattern making and how to create certain styles. The steps inside helps you to create the right shape and design to put on paper and use as a pattern. Of course, if you are beginning or have a little knowledge of patterns, at least this book can be a helpful guidance to aid in your passion for designing clothing! That is exactly what it's [...]

    2. I am new to sewing and found this book while poking around on netgalley. I have made a few garments and am eager to expand my knowledge base, so I requested the book and was delighted to receive a copy in exchange for an honest review.And, honestly, I liked it. But, I have to knock off two stars because I was using a digital copy that had formatting issues - the pictures did not line up with with the text or didn't open at all. Since a lot of other reviews seem to indicate it is beautifully illu [...]

    3. As a self taught dressmaker, books such as these are an invaluable source of informationThe commercial pattern is one that has been used for decades, and very often with disappointing results concerning fitting.What this book does is show you how to step up your sewing by giving a master class in shaping, fitting and personalising your pattern for a more bespoke garment.Every garment is given the Sara Alm treatment. Dresses, trousers and skirt are made and adapted so they fit well and look good. [...]

    4. This book seems to me, a person who wants to start sewing for the first time and be able to hold a needle and successfully be able to sew a proper dress, is a wrong book. It is not a beginner's book but it did show some crazy tips in between the lines that may be good if applied. And it did show the tools and measurements that I really liked. The close up images were perfect for looking at that. White cloth choice was a good choice to see measurements, cutting lines, and shape or outcome the dre [...]

    5. Easy to follow, with ample clear illustrations and step-by-step instructions. Written in clear, plain language, which I - as an amateur home sewer - found easy to understand. I've been trying to learn about pattern making for a while now, mostly via online written and video tutorials, as I have found most pattern making books to be aimed at someone formally studying clothing design. Nowhere have I found anything that I could use so easily to get me on the way to sewing well fitting garments. I w [...]

    6. I am extremely impresses with this book, I have done a fair bit of dressmaking in my time and even tried drafting my own patterns, but have never been satisfied with the results. This book is a very well explained method of altering your shell pattern to make clothing that you can design. The method is fairly simply and the results are very professional, I don't think I will need to buy a pattern again, as not only does explain the method but gives confidence to mix and match the alterations to [...]

    7. Designing Clothes with the Flat Pattern Method: Customize Fitting Shells to Create Garments in Any Style by Sara Alm was an informative read. It explains how to make a flat pattern. It is not for the very beginner as you need to have some knowledge to understand. It is an excellent with photos to show you how. It show the tools and measurements . It does lain in terms that help. It is well written. It is an useful book especially if designing clothes is your future or needed to be done because o [...]

    8. This review was made possible by NetGalley, who provided a Digital Advanced Release Copy for review (DARC); my review of the material may not wholly reflect the final product upon its publication.I've finished this title but haven't formulated a complete review of the material yet due to the nature of the book. When I do, I'll update this page to reflect my thoughts.

    9. I have been sewing for years and have altered a few patterns, and the explanations and suggestions in this book take out some of the guesswork. I would recommend it for anyone who needs to make adjustments to a patternd isn't that just about everyone? I requested and received an ARC from Netgalley to read and review.

    10. I have been a dressmaker for over 40 years and was intrigued by this book as years ago I did make garments cut from other garments - hence flat pattern. However, this is not what this book is about really. The book shows you how to make a pattern from which you will make a muslin or shell as the author calls it. You will then use this as the basis for your other makes.There is no basic pattern included, you must draw your own, either from scratch or an existing pattern you own. You can see this [...]

    11. I received this book in exchanges for a honest review from Netgalley.This book is beautifully laid out and has some great images, a really interesting book for anyone interesting in alternative pattern making!

    12. I love this book. I bought a sewing machine last year. I love making clothes for myself and making sure they fit perfectly. I love that I'll be able to adapt my patterns and move on to making my own from scratch. This would make an ideal present to inspiring designers, although I keep my own clothes somewhat more tame.
