Sew A Skirt Series – sewing ebook launched

Sew a Skirt - beginners tutorial series. New sewing lesson e-book launched by So Sew Easy.


I wrote a book!  Well, to be fair it was mostly already written and I made it into a book.  My Sew a Skirt – beginners tutorial series sewing ebook is launched and for sale on Craftsy.

It contains all of the lessons from the Sew A Skirt series together with the full instructions on how to draft your custom fit skirt pattern.  In the future, I hope to expand upon this basic skirt pattern to show other options for how it can be adapted to other styles and shapes while still keeping the custom fit.  So this book would be good to have and keep so you could refer to it later.

And of course if you haven't made your skirt yet – get this book and start sewing!

How to Sew A Skirt. Beginners tutorial series covers fabric, patterns, cutting out, darts, zipper, lining, hems and more. You can totally learn to sew from this set of tutorials - from So Sew Easy.

Join the Sew A Skirt Series


But I'm not asking you to pay for it – I have a special offer day on Wednesday 23rd October when this book will be available for FREE DOWNLOAD from Amazon.


Put a note in your diary for 23rd October, and come back to this post to click on the links – on that day the book will be a free download.  If you like it, then it would also help me if you were kind enough to go to Amazon and leave a nice review too, as this might encourage sales in the future.

Thanks for reading, downloading and reviewing.  Enjoy the book.

      The book is really just a round up of the posts and information in the Sew A Skirt series, so even if you didn’t get the book to download, all of the information is still available on the site. Start here -Sew A Skirt Series- and you can find all the posts listed there. I hope this helps and I’d love to see what you make!

  2. Congratulations on your new e-book! I’m so dissappointed that I missed the opportunity to try one out for free. It’s been a long time since I have sewn anything, and I’ve only been sewing for a couple of years spazmodically, but the green version of your skirt really got my attention. Perhaps I will have to give it a go!
    Looking forward to seeing more of your designs.

    Thank you for the Free book Deby! It is the first book I have ever gotten online so I am really looking forward to looking at it! Thanks again for all your hard work as well!

    Congratulations, hope it appears on UK site at some point, amazon won’t let me get it through .com site as I am registered in UK. Hope you show a sampling here. Congrats again!

    • Deby Coles says:

      I also have a UK registered Amazon account and I can download it ok Sheila. There is a box over on the right hand side which says something along the lines of *Kindle titles are available for UK customers on
      Continue shopping on the Kindle Store at
      Click on the link to the UK store and it should come up for free there too. Assuming it’s not past midnight already! Still showing as free to the UK at the time of writing this comment. Good luck.

    Sorry to be so dense…so if you don’t have a Kindle you can’t download the book?

    • Deby Coles says:

      Yes you can still download it to a PC – Amazon do a small program you download to the PC which means it can ‘read’ or display books that would otherwise be on a Kindle device. That’s how I see my own book because I don’t own a swanky book-reader. You can find it at Kindle for PC

      • Cindy in Michigan says:

        Thank you, I don’t own any kind of reader either, I had to create an account at Amazon and I was able to download. another stupid question, I don’t see where I can print it out since my computer is not near my sewing machine. Can I print it out?

        • Deby Coles says:

          I had not considered that. It seems the easy answer is No, although you can copy and paste to a Word document on your PC and print from there, whatever parts you want to refer to.

      • Rhonda says:

        I found it in a lower post.

    Thank you for the book! I am in the Netherlands and had no problem downloading it. Great visuals and tips, now even I will be able to make a great skirt.

  12. litcoachDonna says:

    Thanks for the free book on Kindle, Deby. I have been reading it this morning and will put it on my list of must make patterns. It is very well writeen, with clear directions and helpful photos. I don’t have a Kindle, but it lets me read it on my computer in a Kindle Library. I have bookmarked it so I can find it again. Thank you for this generous gift.

    • Deby Coles says:

      Yes, they have a Kindle for PC app which means I also read Kindle titles this way. So even if you don’t have a fancy reader, you can see the book on your PC. Thanks for making this comment to let everyone know. Thanks for downloading Donna.

  13. Jessica says:

    Hi Deby,

    Congratulation to your first book. I ´d love to use the opportunity to download it. Unfortunately I can´t because Amazon don´t allow it with my German account 🙁 🙁 🙁

    • Deby Coles says:

      Oh, sorry to hear that Jessica. I sometimes run into difficulty with Amazon too because my account was registered in the UK. Although I set the book as free for today everywhere, sometimes Amazon have different ideas!

    • Deby Coles says:

      I’ve sent it to you on email Jessica.

      • Jessica says:

        Hi Deby, thank you very, very, very much for your email. With this you made me a very nice birthday present. 😉

        I do not think it is Amazon´s fault. As far as I know the publishing rights in Germany are very special and maybe the issue here.

        I will give it a try to write a review anyway.


  14. Awilda says:

    Congratulations on your book! I had printed out your blog pages for the skirt tutorial as you went along. I wanted it for future references for when I sew the skirt, but I definitely will order the book. Thanks for your clear instructions and fun blog.

  15. Congratulations and TFS the eBook on Wednesday!!
