Lotta Jansdotter Everyday PatternsAbrams Books
An inspiring guide to creating a flexible, seven-piece wardrobe with modern Scandinavian elegance, from style icon Lotta JansdotterWhen Jansdotter wears one of her signature clothing looks, fans frequently ask, “Did you make that?” Lotta’s answer is, “Yes, and so can you!” With that in mind, she has created her second book of easy-to-sew pieces that can be layered to create a variety of looks. Lotta Jansdotter Everyday Patterns is all about flexible, customizable garments to wear in your nest and in your neighborhood, and easy, fun ways to alter each one as the season—or your mood—changes. The book includes sewing instruction and patterns for basic garments (skirt, shirt, shirt dress, tunic, pants, kimono jacket, and robe) and unique accessories (tote bag, double-sided scarf, bandana, and more). For each garment, Jansdotter offers ideas for trims, pockets, sleeves, and hemlines to encourage readers to personalize and add details. And once more, she includes the sources of her inspiration and how she and her friends and family wear key pieces in different variations while working, playing, resting, and traveling.
