Look what is out and I am so excited.  Yes, Sarah Gunn and Julie Starr have written another book and it is such  a good one.

A Stylish Guide to Classic Sewing

Description from C&T Publishing website
Discover the secrets to sewing a stylish wardrobe with staying power! This spirited guide walks you through thirty timeless garments to make for yourself, including a must-have button-up shirt, tailored trousers, a flattering A-line dress, and the indispensable modern classic pencil skirt (pattern and instructions included). With a conversational narrative, the authors have created an engaging, informative guide to sewing by tracing the origins of each garment, along with styling and sewing tips, charming fashion illustrations, and a modeled photo gallery.
• Sew your own clothes, save thousands of dollars, and look like a million bucks!
• Spark your sewing magic and awaken your personal style with thirty timeless garments
• Enjoy whimsical fashion illustrations, a modeled photo gallery, and sewing and styling tips

In the introduction, Sarah and Julie have written "we wrote A Stylish Guide to Classic Sewing to trigger sewing mojo and awaken your personal style by presenting 30 timeless garments which have endured the test of time and carried dozens of trends through the decades"   That they did in this book, you will find chapters on these garments which includes the history, characteristics, sewing tips  and fabric suggestions.  The chapters even have a How to Style section!  I love this part, sometimes I finish something great and then struggle on how to wear it.  Thank you Sarah and Julie for such great advice.

This book is so well-written and the illustrations are amazing
