'The Sweat Shop Book' brings the namesake Paris Sweat Shop founded by Martena Duss and Sissi Holleis to North America with more than 50 DIY fashion and home projects, including instructions and more than 200 helpful, inspiring full-color photographs. The first 'cafe couture' sewing shop in Paris, the Sweat Shop was named to highlight the nature in which store-bought clothing is sometimes made. Crafters meet at the cafe and share ideas while renting equipment by the hour. In addition, classes teach novices how to sew, knit, crochet, and much more. With help from experts such as Madame Vava Dudu and fashion stylist Sonia Rykiel, crafters of every skill level may learn how to mend a seam, make a dress from a pattern, and design and create something from scratch inside 'The Sweat Shop Book'. Additionally, the book includes recipes for cafe fare, Duss and Holleis's Paris picks, and a French and English glossary.
