Freehand Fashion

Learn to Sew the Perfect Wardrobe – No Patterns Required!

Chinelo Bally


Chinelo Bally has developed a freehand cutting method with the emphasis is on the individual's own body measurements, and getting the perfect fit, that is a surprisingly simple technique that anyone can learn. No fancy equipment is needed – just a sewing machine, measuring tape, chalk and of course a good pair of scissors.

Using step-by-step illustrations, the book shows how to draft, cut and construct the five basic blocks that are used – either singly or in combination – to make every item of clothing in the wardrobe. Once you have your basic blocks, you are ready to tackle the practical garments that are fashionable, modern, stylish and versatile. There are tops, skirts, day dresses and eveningwear.

This is an exciting sewing technique that will be brand new to most people, even experienced dressmakers. There really are no limits and the beauty of this technique is that it can be applied to any body shape.
