The Folkwear Book of Ethnic Clothing
Mary S. Parker
This book features hundreds of photographs of traditional clothes from around the world and fascinating stories about the people who wear them.
The author is an expert sewer who has taught workshops around the United States. Included are the six most popular ethnic garments produced by the ‘Folkwear” line of patterns with scaled pattern diagrams to create your own versions of these garments.
As well, the book includes many ways to embellish your garments. Dozens of templates are included so you may have some fun putting an ethnic spin on your sewing creations.
