  6. I desperately want to sew t-shirts as it is such a basic item. I’m still struggling with the difference between the different jersey fabrics & where to find reasonably priced, interesting fabrics.

  7. I would love to sew a t-shirt that actually fits me, and all those patterns that you can make from the same pattern!

  9. Loved your book on Sewing with knits. I got my local library to order it. Hopefully other people will check it out of the library and make wonderful garments.

  10. A great pinafore dress with options to make in indigo denim, corduroy or lighter fabrics. Top stitiching detail & option to fashion with adjustable straps – metal bib & brace style. Also trousers! Trousers always look scary so a step by step basic would be great 🙂. Finally, pockets!!! Pockets in skirts, dresses and ideas on how to add to existing garments. Loving the daily pattern garment reveals.

    I’d like to find a shirt pattern that I could rely on. I’ve tried two or three already and have different fit issues in each of them. I’d also like to find a basic dress pattern that wouldn’t need too many alterations (i’m one or sometimes two sizes larger. in the upper body than lower) I can hope can’t I?

  14. I love sewing shirts because shop bought ones never fit my bust so being able to make them myself is so liberating! I love button-down styles that I previously couldn’t wear because of gaping issues eg shirtdresses and jumpsuits definitely also come into the mix.

  15. I hadn’t looked at any of your posts (apart from admiring the photography) until the shirt came up. Now I am definitely going to be purchasing (if I don’t win one!)

  17. I would like to get better at fitting, particularly trousers for me! I can’t be the only person who struggles with the weirdness of bottoms & waists that challenge the 3D from a 2D pattern, but it sometimes feels like it.

  18. Hi congratulations on your new book. I like so see basic dresses which really help with getting ready for work in the morning. Maybe a jumpsuit on my list would be as equally quick to get dressed.

  20. Have your beginners guide to making skirts. I live in skirts for work and I would love to make something casual for weekends rather than living in jeans. Harper pants would be good in every colour!!

  21. I’d like to make a jumpsuit or some trousers – after years of only wearing dresses or skirts I’ve found myself wanting something a bit different recently!

  22. Sweatshirts, as shop bought ones never seem to have the right fit, and I can buy sweatshirt fabric cheaper than some of the hoodies I’ve seen in shops!

  26. Oooo tunic dress with awesome pockets that is right up my street.

  27. I think for me it would be shirts I can wear to work, especially long-sleeve ones. I work at an independent school in Boise, so the dress code is fairly casual, but I’m an administrator, so I need to have some sense of “not a student” in there. Plus I’m pretty busty so OTR stuff rarely fits right in at least one place. Plus PLUS I love bonkers colors and patterns!

  29. I would love to sew the basic layering pieces you mention – the zip up jacket or worker jacket sound fun to sew and would be items I would wear over and over

  30. Oooh! I can’t wait for your new book! I love my Kinder Cardi pattern from you and it’s my go-to pattern. I’m leaning towards the coat pattern, but I need a good fitting shirt (that could become a dress…) to wear with the Kinder.

  38. If my friend Portia shares it, I know it is worthwhile. Thank you for helping to encouraging this art in a mass made production era. My mother made so many of my clothes and I have lately been inspired to pick it up and stop complaining that their clothes aren’t right for my body. I can make my own right for me.

  39. Hi Wendy, congrats on the new book! I think we need much more mindful sewing especially in this new decade, where the environment is so much more top of mind. And basics are definitely the way to ensure we sew things that will reach that mythical 30 wears! My go-to basics are definitely jeans, so that’s what I’d choose, but I do like the idea of a parka too!

  40. I’m in dire need of a good basic white shirt that fits, but knowing myself I’d probably be tempted by the jumpsuit first!

  42. I’d start with the jumpsuit, as I love them but struggle to find the right fit for my body shape. I could then have a range for work and play.

  43. I’m back sewing after a long break. Your new book would be just what I need to find some inspiration coupled with basic techniques. Would love to win one!

  44. Oh tricky because they are all so useful. I think if I had to choose it would be the jumpsuit first as I have been itching to try one and I love the utilitarian look of yours followed very quickly by the hoody. I would be comfortably on trend! A first for me!

  45. Hi Wendy so excited for you book it’s the trousers I would love to see first. They are the everyday garment that o have never made for me. Also to be able to kit out my family and myself in me-made clothes from sustainable fabrics would be a dream come true. I love cutting up our clothes which are no longer of use but the fabrics are and making them into something that is useful and wearable. I think this book would help provide the patterns and techniques to do that for us all. Wishing you all the best in your book release.

  48. I like sewing with knits, and have enjoyed your industry techniques and sewing your knit patterns from the Sewing with Knit Fabrics book. I would love to have a copy of this book because I like wearing jumpsuits, but have not sewn one.
