Brett Bara has a sophisticated eye for design, and it elevates this collection of straight-seam-oriented projects into lovely items to wear, decorate with, or give as gifts. There are 26 projects in all, ranging from simple skirts and tops to pillows and totes to duvets and quilts. If you can sew a basic seam, you can tackle them all.
Potter Craft has done a wonderful job with the instructional aspect of the book. Each project is illustrated with diagrams of all key steps, so beginners should have no problem following along. There are also wonderful touches like shirring, pin tucks and top stitching to keep more advanced stitchers engaged.
You can take a peek at more of the projects, see some video how-to’s, and follow along with the Sewing in a Straight Line Blog Tour over at Brett’s blog, Manhattan Craft Room.
