You MUST read this! What a wonderful book, full of dressmaking, designs, techniques to be gleaned from this wonderful quirky tale!
This is an Australian novel published in 2000 by Rosalie Ham, her first novel. Rosalie describes wonderful styles of dress design in a way that has you right there in the protaganist's sewing room! The book is not without literary subtance though : romance, tragedy and triumph are all present written in flair and true story teller style. I LOVED it!!!!
So please read it and let me know what you thought of it. Maybe we could have a "book club" on it?
