There's a greater variety of patterns and design ideas in this book; but it does complement the 2 previous volumes. This book is primarily about the author's clothing designs and how to manipulate them. There should be 2 pattern sheets (patterns are also available in Alabama Studio Sewing Patterns book.

First - people, PLEASE do not take the patterns out of the book. Some copies of the books have the patterns in and some do not. If you want to use them, trace them onto a piece or two oftissue paper or whatever your favorite medium is and use that. Thank you :)

My comment about the actual book is that it is similar to the Alabama Stitches book, but this one doesn't try to make everything out of t-shirts (it assumes that you will go out and buy jersey). It also spends more time talking about decorative stitches and embellishments, which I appreciated.

The library copy does not include the patterns. However, it's a beautiful book, with lots of inspiration. Who knew cotton jersey could look so expensive!
