Here is a list of all the sewing/costuming related books and patterns I own.
I plan to write reviews for all of them but this will take some time so please stay tuned.
If you want me to review a certain book or pattern sooner because you need help to decide whether or not you should buy it, please send me a message and I’ll try my best to review it first!
