Vintage Bookshelf: Sew Iconic
Given that I'm making something of a habit of recreating my favourite Hollywood dresses for my own wardrobe, you can imagine how excited I was to hear about a whole book dedicated to the concept, when Lena of Queens of Vintage contacted me about doing a review.
Sew Iconic profiles ten movie costumes, each epitomising an era, with patterns and instructions to make your own version. It's a well thought-out, nicely presented book, though despite efforts to make it accessible to beginners it's still not really suitable for the novice.
Some of my favourite projects are shown below, and you can read my full review over on Queens of Vintage.
