Fashion designer Lena Santana was born in Salvador, Brazil, studied in London and now lives in Rio de Janeiro. She has worked as a costume designer and her collections have been sold in both Europe and South America. Lena currently teaches fashion dressmaking courses through Designer Courses in London.
Lena Santana has devised a collection of simple, beautifully made sewing projects that serve as a perfect introduction to dressmaking. With a comprehensive guide to choosing and using fabrics, and a handy techniques section beginners will be masters of sewing basics in no time. This really is a lovely little book and absolutely perfect for beginners. With lots of patterns (that can be enlarged) you can learn how to make a whole host of items, from a shopping bag to a bikini! ~ Liz Robinson
