|Zero Waste Sewing / Elizabeth Haywood|
Clare, South Australia: Cooatalaa Press, 2020.
If you're interested in sustainability and the idea of zero waste sewing, this homey book is a must read! Liz Haywood is a patternmaker from Australia, with years of experience in pattern cutting and design, and she's been investigating zero waste for a while. This book offers 16 patterns and variations for sewists to give this a try -- if you're new to zero waste, as I am, I can assure you that there are a variety of styles here, and they are very approachable.
You can find a lot of info about this book at Liz Haywood's website, The Craft of Clothes, as well as lots of other fascinating content and some free patterns to try out. She also has an Etsy store where you can buy her books and many other patterns not in this book. Lots to explore!
But on to the book. Here are the patterns included (from her website):
Really a solid book, immediately useful and giving a great introduction to an area of sewing that is still fairly new. Recommended!
