"Stitchers rejoice! In Sewing Love, Sanae Ishida demystifies pattern making and steers you through the process drafting a sloper or template of your unique body measurements. From there, it's onto different ways to modify the base pieces into gorgeous garments. With this book as your guide, you'll soon be 'sewing up some love' for yourself."
--Sonya Philip, author of The Act of Sewing

"Sewing is positioned as self-care in this uplifting [guide] . . . The real gold comes in an in-depth section that teaches readers how to create and customize their own patterns based on their personal measurements by drafting paper pattern pieces and sewing up a muslin to test them out. This guide to garment sewing is a must-read for crafters of all levels."
--Publishers Weekly

"Sewing Love is, at heart, a love poem to bodies and sewing along with an in-depth method for creating your own sloper and then just-right-for-you patterns."
--A Happy Stitch
