They look like exciting books.  Are they really difficult to make?  My sewing with jersey has only been basic tees and tops, but I do have some nice drapey fabric, but I have no idea whether it they would be too difficult for me.

No! I made mine fine...
and I have never sewn stretch material ever before!
It was really easy (tho' obviously there are more difficult patterns in the books) it just didn't thrill me...

This is the toile...



and it had a hideously low neckline which I intend to remedy with a judiciously placed drape of leftover fabric...



This was just placed, not sewn!

That looks pretty impressive for a first time and drapes well.  I am trying to do some googling searches to see what the patterns are like.  I like this one.

But I am not sure whether they are a bit too fancy for me.  I rarely go out in the evening with no babysitters so have very little need to dress up.  They do look nice though.  Will spend a bit more time googling to see what else I can find.

Oh Imi, I've been following your adventures with this top, was it that bad as to be selling your books  :S
not for me I'm afraid the designs are a little bit eccentric for me, hope you find a buyer.

Thank you ...

I don't think it drapes at all, not in the way I think of draping, however all the seams are smooth and pucker free and it wears well, as long as I could rectify that ridiculous neckline...so I must have done something right!

I wish i has a simple Tshirt pattern for my lovely blue fabric (that I have very lil of) as I would like to be able to make a new comfy top for myself.

So no takers for the books then ???  :(

I guess I have left it a few minutes too late but I would be interested in them if Jo changes her mind.  I think The 1st one would be more useful for me.

Rowe, it's allright, you can have them, since you were first to express interest :)
I'll just buy them from Amazon.

How about one each ladies ?

Rowe would prefer the DD, 1st book,
The pattern for the top, as seen on GBSB, and more infamously here, is in DD 2.... which could wing its way to JO ??
What do you think Girls ?

Sorry, been a little busy :)
For me it would have been more convenient to have them both, as I would only pay for shipping once. If it's just one...it kinda adds up (uk shipping + shipping to Ro + shipping for the other one).
