Rosie Martin, the force behind DIYcouture, discusses her new book No Patterns Needed, a collection of patternless sewing designs based on squares, circles, and rectangles. Rosie shares how she started designing patternless fashions, her favorite indie patterns to sew from, and where she likes to go for inspiration in London, her hometown.
Also, in this episode, Rosie mentions scuba (as in the fabric). We weren’t sure about the definition of what this fabric is, but Rosie followed up after our call, explaining it’s a double knit, usually made from fine-gauge thread, which gives it a very smooth finish. And it’s generally always made from polyester.
