Here is the long-awaited sewing book from Flirt, the fabulous Brooklyn boutique known for its fresh outlook and flattering designs. Since opening in 2000, the creative team behind Flirt, Patti Gilstrap and Seryn Potter, have designed hundreds of unique skirts through the store's immensely popular Custom Skirt program--they have also seemingly taught half of Brooklyn to sew in their Home Ec Sewing Studio. Now it all comes together with this must-have collection of skirts that anyone can sew!
           
Patti and Seryn's philosophy is simple: All you need is 3 basic skirt patterns--A-line, Pencil, and Flare. Then add unique details to each skirt to create your own, one-of-a-kind designs. Flirt Skirts pairs these basic skirts with 20 fabulous projects, so you'll soon have your own wardrobe of flattering, wear-anywhere skirts.
           
With photographs of finished projects, step-by-step instructions, easy-to-follow diagrams, pattern templates, perfect fit how-tos, and styling tips, you'll find that every skirt in this indispensable book is utterly sewable and totally wearable, suiting every figure, lifestyle, and level of sewing skill. You will want to make them all!

The book starts with basic patterns for a-line, pencil and flare skirts, and then has a couple variations of each. The patterns tend to be bold and showy.

Using this book is simple. After introducing you to the sewing basics, we discuss the fit of the three basic-skirt styles; then we show you how to work with the patterns and templates. When you reach the Building Your basic Skirt section, regard this section as something of a skirt-making bible since the basic skirts are the foundations for each project. The Pin-fitting step is extremely important, especially if you want to obtain the perfect fit for your body. Then we will show you twenty techniques, including appliqueing, pleating, printing, and design stitching, to transform your basic skirts into unique and exciting garments.
