Everyday wearables by Joanne Scrace of The Crochet Project is a collection of eight wardrobe staples with comprehensive instructions and many photo tutorials to help you make garments that fit and flatter.

Joanne says: "Maybe it’s the somewhat shy exhibitionist in me, but I have always loved making things to wear. The thrill of being able to say “Thanks, I made it.” never gets old. When times have been tight or shopping has been an unpleasant process (for various reasons) I’ve been glad of my ability to combine my favourite leisure activities with the ability to produce interesting and elegant clothing for myself whether by sewing, knitting or crocheting."

Whatever your motivation for wanting to create a handmade wardrobe, crochet can readily be used to build a wardrobe full of wearable staples. Often crochet has been viewed as “best for homewares and novelties” and struggled to lose the reputation created in the 1970s of ill-fitting granny square jackets. With an in-depth understanding of how crochet fabric is created, the need for drape and taking fit and construction lessons from both knitwear and dressmaking, Joanne has created pieces that fit well and look great.

Understanding that making a wardrobe may also challenge your skills. Joanne has included a series of photo tutorials in the book that take the adventurous beginner a step on and cover the skills needed to create beautiful pieces to cherish.

The book is written in UK standard crochet terminology and has a full discussion of the differences between the UK and US standards and makes references to the US terms throughout.
