    • The title says it all. Sort of. While there are no patterns attached to the book, you still do technically use pattern pieces. But the patterns are drafted based on a shape (square, circle or triangle) and your own body measurements. There were a few garments in this that I really loved, but there were also a few duds. But since everything is based on a basic shape, any and all of them can be hacked, tweaked, morphed into whatever you want them to be. Great jumping off points. If I can't manage [...]


    • Despite being titled “No Patterns Needed,” you are essentially guided through drafting your own simple patterns to create the looks in this book. While I don’t usually mind DIY/sewing books of this kind, the styles are a little too basic, even for the beginner sewist. Giant circle cutout pockets? Just show us how to do a regular side seam pocket or a circular patch pocket without the cutout detail.


    • Intriguing book on fashionable DIY outfits based on circles, rectangles, and triangles. Step by step directions and a method to fit every body size. Yes, you make your own simple patterns, which I have found when making clothing from previously-purchased commercial clothes is always the way. Most of the fashions are for the younger set, but the dresses could be used for fun weekend wear by anyone. British designer Martin does an exacting and thorough job with this volume.


    • I think the subtitle "DIY Couture from Simple Shapes" threw me. I was expecting something 'more'. It's a good book for someone who is wanting to advance their sewing by creating their own patterns, but wasn't really impressed. I felt not only were they creating their own patterns, but doing it with low end fabrics.


    • This book just didn't work for me. The "styles" are a bit strange. The photos unflattering. The directions too cheery.




    • Can't wait to try some of the designs in this book! The are fairly simple, but with lovely fabrics I think they could work well, and I could add features such as wider waistbands. A fun book that feels empowering to those of us who would like to sew more creatively.


    • I was really disappointed here. Even though the title is "No Patterns Needed" the instructions just tell you to make a pattern out of newspaper. I was hoping for instructions that simply used measurements and basic geometric shapes. It doesn't help that the photos of the clothes are against terrible backdrops with terrible lighting. Big bummer. :-(
