Sweet Inspiration | SON OF Hassle Free Sewing

A mistake and oversight on my behalf while ordering my very own copy of The Illustrated Hassle-Free Make Your Own Clothes Book brought me a copy of its predecessor, Son of Hassle-Free Sewing. To my delight, this second book features equally exciting hand-drawn illustrations and instructions, as well as photos from the family scrap-book.

Doesn't Drumgo look great in his clown suit? I wish he'd come by the shop ... I'd love to meet him! And Birgitta moves so well in her halter dress. Obviously Burke enjoys it all.
And what's not to love about an entire section devoted to easy-access and open-air wear? I was born 30 years late.

"Because we're ladies, the wording of the projects may seem to imply they are exclusively for others of our own gender but it ain't so. Most everything can be made for either a lady, a man or a child."

"Good garments for men would be:
Short Shorts (Elastic-Top and Fly Front)
Overalls
Hot Overalls
Harem Pants
Western Shirt
Multi T-Shirt
Wraparound Pants
Maxine's Mandarin Jacket
Punjabi Pants
Drumgo's Fabulous Clown Suit for Children of Aaalll Ages"

On (Hot) Overalls | page 26
"When we all lived together, Bert brought back a pair of old-gold velvet overalls from King's Road, England. Both Sharon and Richie wanted them and an instant competition developed. For a number of weeks the overalls hung out alone in the closet, awaiting the winner. Eventually Richie's smaller tush was victorious."

I found that book at a garage sale and now its my favorite coffee table book. I love the photo'e too-especially the H.S. Reunion Dress along with the feedback after the fact to to never wear it to a high school reunion since she got stared at the whole time. But, I think it was the pit hair they were staring at. Fun Book! They looked like interesting people.
