Their only mission was to stop at the Mexican pastry shop for a treat. But first they had to pass Vega’s Vicious Vinyl. Grandma, stop, I want to see this window display. It’s so sparkly, look at those dresses hanging u. nd all the photos on the floor. Beautiful, the grandmother said. It looks like a tribute to the woman in the picture.

The Rollers of Vildar
Miss Scarlet's School of Patternless Sewing by Kathy Cano Murillo is an uplifting story about a woman with a dream, and the plans she makes and friends she has that help her to achieve it. Scarlet Santana is a sewing whiz with a vision that's off the beaten path. She's inspired by bright colors, bold pairings, Carmen Miranda, and Daisy de la Flora. Her dream is to become a famous fashion designer, and it's nearly realized when she is offered a coveted spot in the Johnny "Scissors" Tijeras Emerging Designers Program in New York City. Johnny just happens to be the nephew of her idol, reclusive designer Daisy de la Flora. The problems she runs into are lack of money (this is not a free program...she must pay thousands of dollars in order to participate), what it means to give something your all, and the lack of support from her family, who think she's wasting her life on this foolish dream.

Scarlet needs cash, and she needs it fast in order to pay for her tuition in the prestigious Johnny Scissors Emerging Designers Program inNew York City. She decides to teach a patternless sewing class at the design studio of her boss, esteemed designer Carly Fontaine, but at the last minute, Carly reneges on the deal they had, and Scarlet is left with a lot of paying students, but without a suitable space.

Coming to the rescue is hunky Marco Vega, owner of record store Vicious Vinyl, who just happens to have the space Scarlet needs, and is willing to do what it takes to get Scarlet to use the space...and notice him. Now that the class isn't at the prestigious Carly Fontaine design studio, some of her students have dropped out; okay, most of them have dropped out. But that's okay - Scarlet has a plan for raising the extra money she needs - she'll just work harder and longer!

Her students are an eclectic bunch. There's workaholic Mary Theresa whose marriage is about as tangled as a wayward bobbin; Rosa, a seasoned seamstress herself who has ulterior motives for being in the class; Stephanie and Jennifer, teenage sisters - one of which wants to be in the class, and one who would rather be out playing sports; and "Ohliveyah", a single mom, just getting by, who is learning to live for herself after being stuck in a bad marriage. They learn to let go of their inhibitions, love themselves, and make time for each other, all while sewing beautiful clothes...without using a pattern.

Scarlet's family cannot understand why she's going after this ridiculous dream. She has two degrees, and she could be a great engineer making a six figure salary instead of slaving away. Scarlet decides that avoidance is the best way to deal with this problem, but that creates even more of a rift in her family. She's not sure that she'll ever be able to get them to see that while she could be an engineer, she will be a great designer.

Will Scarlet raise the money she needs? Will she uncover her friends' secrets? Will her family ever accept her for who she is? You need to read the book in order to find out!

The story isn't only about Scarlet and her dreams. Kathy Cano Murillo does an excellent job at giving the reader things to think about in our own lives, most especially through the blog posts Scarlet writes on her Daisy Forever blog. The overall message of the book is to believe in yourself and to follow your dreams, and to make sure you take the time to enjoy the process and the special people in your life while you do that. This book came at a time in my life when I most needed it. I was feeling down about myself, and I couldn't see the light at the end of the tunnel. I'm not going to lie, I cried for a good portion of the end of the book - but in a good way, not a bad way. That's how deeply this book touched me.

Miss Scarlet's School of Patternless Sewing is an excellent book that I would recommend to anyone who wants to read a story about all of the ups and downs that are taken when you stay true to yourself and follow your dreams.

I thought this was a great book. It's an easy read and it's even easier to fall deep in the story. This is the first book I read by this author and I plan to check out other books written by her. I highly recommend that a person reads this book!!

I just finished reading Miss Scarlet's School of Patternless Sewing. I pre-ordered this book months ago because I enjoyed Kathy Cano-Murillo's first novel Waking Up in the Land of Glitter. I was so excited when Patternless Sewing arrived last week- hot off the presses. But I was even more excited when I finished reading the first 50 pages. I have spent every free moment over the last few days with Scarlet and her students. The book was wonderful. The charactor's actions and words played in my head as I read like a wonderful feature film! I miss these dressmakers already, so I am sure I will reread the book soon.

Patternless Sewing is the best "crafty lit." book I have read.

Congratulations to Kathy Cano-Murillo. Crafty Chica, please keep writing! I wonder If Amazon will let me pre-order your next novel now.

This was the best book I have read in a long time. Kathy is a friend of mine and we used to work together and she is just such a blast and such a wonderful person that it is no wonder she is a great writer and the book keeps your attention to the end.

This is another great read from Kathy Cano-Murillo; she is definitely an author to follow. Once again, the story Kathy tells is fun and engaging, as well as full of crafty goodness. Again, once I started it, it was hard to put down. Kathy's characters are fully fleshed out, interesting people that you'd want to get to know. The story comes partly from her blogging experience and is partly fiction, but she makes it all believable and makes you want to know where it's going next. Once the ride is over, you want it to keep going - and to my mind, that is the best praise I can give to any book!

My friend introduced me to The Crafty Chica. I love glitter so she gave me "Waking Up In The Land Of Glitter". It was fun to read. I in turn gave her "Miss Scarlet's School Of Patternless Sewing" because my friend is an incredible seamstress. She loved the book.
