This compendium takes the Alabama Chanin library to the next level, offering all the patterns from Chanin's first three books on a convenient CD, plus instructions and patterns for 12 new skirts, dresses, tops, and jackets, with illustrated guidelines for customizing the fit and style of each. Chanin teaches readers the ins and outs of refashioning shapes, raising and lowering necklines, taking in and letting out waistlines, and many more key forms of customization; she also provides guidelines for adapting patterns from other popular sewing companies to the Alabama Chanin style--stitched by hand in organic cotton jersey and embellished with stencils, embroidery, and beading.

This volume contains all of the patterns from the previous 3 books, and several new ones. They can be printed at home if you are willing to put a little work into it (there are instructions for this in the book). The designs are simple but can be embellished to an extraordinary degree following the instructions in the book. You can sew them by machine if you like, although the handsewing instructions are easy to follow and work wonderfully.
