Christine Haynes Blog Tour & Pattern Giveaway

Hello Craftsy blog readers! I am Christine Haynes, and I teach the Sassy Librarian Blouse, right here on Craftsy. In addition to that, I have my own line of sewing patterns, teach people in real life, and also write about sewing.

Today I’d like to introduce my newest book, The Complete Photo Guide to Clothing Construction! I am so proud of the book and am thrilled to share an excerpt from it along with an exclusive pattern giveaway with you!

Christine Haynes Book: Clothing Construction

Unlike other books, this is a photo guide, so every single item, step, tutorial and detail is presented in clear, beautiful photographs, making learning fun and easy! See for yourself in the selection of pages shared below!

As you can see, it's a very technique-driven book that takes a detailed look at the garment construction process. It's filled with large images, too, to help you navigate each step!

And now a gift for you!

As a thank you to all my lovely Craftsy readers and students, I am giving away a pattern of your choice from my collection! Simply visit my shop at and tell me which pattern you'd like and why in the comments of this post! This is open to anyone anywhere in the world, and shipping's on me.
