About the Book:
Sometimes to find your life's true path, you have to stray outside the lines . . .

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.

Quickie Review:
Miss Scarlet's School of Patternless Sewing by Kathy Cano-Murillo is incredibly endearing with a wonderful cast of characters. I without a doubt fell in love with the charismatic, witty Miss Scarlet Santana and you will too. This isn't my usual genre and maybe that is why it didn't land in my pile of favorite books, but anyone who loves chick lit and/or crafts, will be totally enthralled with this book. Anyone love sewing out there? You must read this one!

Though this is the second installment in the Crafty Chica series, it can be read as a stand alone novel. The plot and writing had a magnificent flow and the story was easy to follow. I will definitely be looking for more of Kathy's books... and maybe pick up sewing too. ;)
