My Review:

From the Publisher:
Here is the long-awaited sewing book from Flirt, the fabulous Brooklyn boutique known for its fresh outlook and flattering designs. Since opening in 2000, the creative team behind Flirt, Patti Gilstrap and Seryn Potter, have designed hundreds of unique skirts through the store’s immensely popular Custom Skirt program—they have also seemingly taught half of Brooklyn to sew in their Home Ec Sewing Studio. Now it all comes together with this must-have collection of skirts that anyone can sew!

Patti and Seryn’s philosophy is simple: All you need is 3 basic skirt patterns—A-line, Pencil, and Flare. Then add unique details to each skirt to create your own, one-of-a-kind designs. Flirt Skirts pairs these basic skirts with 20 fabulous projects, so you’ll soon have your own wardrobe of flattering, wear-anywhere skirts.

With photographs of finished projects, step-by-step instructions, easy-to-follow diagrams, pattern templates, perfect fit how-tos, and styling tips, you’ll find that every skirt in this indispensable book is utterly sewable and totally wearable, suiting every figure, lifestyle, and level of sewing skill. You will want to make them all!

I don't sew at all, but I love the idea of having just three basic patterns to make a variety of skirts!

Impressive, unfortunately I consider sewing dangerous to my health. lol. Every time I attempt the fabric just ends up looking like a blood donation.
