Sew Iconic by Liz Gregory (ARC)
Each of the 10 chapters provides a brief summary of the actress who wore the dress, the movie, the story behind the dress and of course, how to sew the dress. I'm actually quite psyched about the book (Breakfast at Tiffany's anyone?) because my Aunt and Grandma can sew according to a pattern(:
The book actually seems quite straightforward, and they seem to try to make things as easy as possible. If you decide to buy the book (and there's both an ebook and print version), make sure you buy the print version. It's hard (if not impossible) to cut out accurately based on patterns.
But I think to me, the most enjoyable thing about the book are all the pictures. There are lots and lots of geogous pictures of the dresses, which definitely tempt me into wanting to make it (if I had the slightest knowledge how!)
And can I mention (if you haven't noticed), the pun in the title, which is cute if predictable.
Disclaimer: I got this book free from NetGalley in exchange for a free and honest review.
P.s. sorry about the lack of Teaser Tuesdays. I don't have anymore actual books and I have no idea how to pick random sentences form an ebook.
