Scarlet Santana is never happier than when creating fabulous fashions for women of all shapes and sizes. Now, after years of hard work, she finally has the chance to live her dream and study under the hottest designer in New York. To raise money for her move, Scarlet opens an after-hours sewing school in a local record shop, teaching a type-A working mom whose rigid parenting style is causing her family to unravel and an enigmatic seamstress with a mysterious past.
But as stitches give way to secrets and classmates become friends, the women realize an important truth: There is no single pattern for a good life. Happiness is always a custom fit.

Like gaining a cadre of fun, fascinating growing friends
The characters become friends and I found myself rooting for them, agonizing with their plights and celebrating with their triumphs. The crafting and creativity is delicious. The love of retro resonated with my own interest, and the memories passed down by the family members were valuable life lessons for everyone.

Visit the World of Sewing.
Where does Miss Scarlet's School of Patternless Sewing rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I have never read a book about the art of sewing before.
What other book might you compare Miss Scarlet's School of Patternless Sewing to and why?
What about Tavia Gilbert’s performance did you like?
Tavia Gilbert's performance gave me the feelings of the charaters weather they were older designers or the young dreamers. The feelings of the beginners learning and overcoming their fears .
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, but I didn't. The perfect time for me was in my sewing room with a pot of tea surrounded by fabric with a new project. It was relaxing and interesting.
Any additional comments?
We need more books about enjoying working alone and being creative . We should encourage people to raise their crafts to an art form.
