  • How to Make a Dress is inspirational. It shows the relevance of fashion in everyday life - undertaking a cool analysis of your closet the Packham way reveals more than garments but the tale of an interesting past. The mad, mad mistakes, the ridiculous dreams, that unworn touch of regret. Unlike most designers Packham acknowledges the word sexy when it comes to dressing and chooses Marilyn Monroe as a Muse. Taut as the seams that hold the top A-listers on the red carpet, it's so much more than frock and roll.

  • I love this book. It's a very beautiful and intimate insight into the creative mind. Jenny takes us on the journey from her childhood to the glamourous world of dressing the red carpet stars with such refreshing honesty. I couldn't put it down!

    Deborah Brett, fashion editor
  • I really enjoyed this book, the photographs are fabulous, and the stories even better. I just could not put this down, can't wait for the next one!

    Richard Young, photographer
  • Packham details her inspirations, struggles and successes in a style that is as lyrical and dreamy as one of her own satin and gauze confections.

  • What a beautiful story. Not only does it take you through the journey of her inspiration and the making of her gorgeous pieces but I love the details of Jenny's personal life. I read it in one sitting and I loved it.

    Jessica Paster, celebrity stylist
  • Jenny writes with an eye for colour, a feel for romance and an unerring instinct for the pertinent detail. Passionate about fashion and unpersuaded by its excesses, How To Make A Dress is a total treat.
