It’s time to start sewing with Sew It Yourself with DIY Daisy: 20 pattern-free projects (and infinite variations) to make your dream wardrobe.

When Daisy Braid started sewing, patterns were out of her budget so she just started DIYing! Sew It Yourself with DIY Daisy is a colourful, size-inclusive and inspiring book for sewers of all stages and abilities, beginners included. It includes guides on everything you need to get started (including equipment, materials and basic techniques) and step-by-step projects with clear instructions, photographs and illustrations that will take the scary out of sewing.

Daisy’s designs use simple shapes to create playful, classic and comfortable pieces that can be styled for all occasions, whether that’s a picnic date or a WFH day. The book features 10 small accessory projects and 10 more advanced clothing projects, each with a fun variation (but with potential for endless customisation). There’s no standard sizing – just your own body measurements – and no zips or buttons required! They also encourage intentional sewing practices, with projects that produce minimal waste and can even be made with leftover fabric scraps.

So get out that sewing machine (or borrow one from your granny) – Sew It Yourself with DIY Daisy is all you need to get started on discovering (or rediscovering) sewing and creating something one-of-a-kind. Just remember: sewing is self-care, and you make the rules!

“I’m Daisy, I am a content creator and author from the Gold Coast, Australia.

I love sewing and learned as a teenager on my grandmother’s old sewing machine, altering op-shop finds and DIY’ing new outfits with remnants from my fabulous fashion designer aunt.
During high school, I would incorporate sewing into my art projects by creating mini collections and submitting look books filled with pictures of my friends modelling my creations.
After school, I forgot about sewing while I focused on my studies and enjoyed my summers working snow seasons in Niseko, Japan and Jindabyne, Australia.

Sewing came back into my life in 2016 when I moved to NZ to experience a new city and live with my Aunt. What was only supposed to be a 3-month trip turned into 2.5 years and is where DIY Daisy was born. I fell back in love with fashion, learned about the fashion industry and was inspired to get back behind a sewing machine.”

Sew it Yourself is Daisy’s first book and you can find out more on her website with great tutorials
