The book is written by Francesca Denhartog & Carole Ann Camp, published by Storey Publishing. THANK YOU TO STOREY PUBLISHING FOR PROVIDING THIS & OTHER BOOKS COMING UP!  This book has that very practical spiral bound format so you can flip the book back on itself without damaging the spine. So what is this book about?? As the front cover (above) suggests, it has 16 different skirt projects with full instructions on how to make them.

I really liked it as I thought many of them were really neat: practical, pretty and I would definitely wear a skirt like that.

The projects are skirts for all seasons. I know we don’t exactly want to think winter right now but it will roll around eventually and you might like a new skirt like the pic below to wear with your boots??
