Sew Serendipity

First of all, I absolutely love this book! I actually want to make these clothes!
Sew Serendipity was written by Kay Whitt, a former elementary school teacher who left the classroom to launch her own pattern company. Which,  judging by these designs, was a smart move.  This book features 3 basic designs ~ a skirt, a tunic/dress, and a jacket/coat.  What makes them unique is in the creative way she combines fabrics and decorative touches, turning simple styles into one-of-a-kind pieces.  The featured fabrics are gorgeous, where can I buy them? (Oh, better check the resource list in the back.)
Included are full-size patterns with cutting lines to fit from XXS to XXL!

In addition to the super-cute skirt pictured on the cover, check out these designs, all made from a basic 6-panel skirt pattern.


Here is the easy to fit dress.  Make it shorter and you have a tunic.

Here is the jacket made in the short hip-length version.  I love the combination of silk and linen.
