Sewing, the vintage way is still one of the key trends of the moment and we can't seem to get enough. Inspired by Lisa’s love of vintage fashion and design, this book features 30 projects, ranging from jewellery, hats, tops, dresses and bags to cushions, lampshades, placemats, lanterns and a luxury chair pouffe - all modeled by the lovely Lisa.

The book starts off with some informative sections with guidelines for pattern cutting, what pattern cutting tools you'll need as well as top tips for measuring.

Each project has a clearly labelled skill level, as well as step-by-step photography, plus instructions on how to draft your own bodice block so that all the clothing can be made to fit your body shape perfectly.

My favourite projects are:
Vintage Brooch Embellishment that will add sparkle to any plain sweater
1950's button-up full-circle skirt
