5.0 out of 5 stars Just what we needed! 15 Sep 2007
By Floss
My daughter, completely inspired by Project Runway, tried to sew herself a few outfits but was frustrated when nothing fitted like she wanted it to. When I saw this neat little book, I knew it was the answer to her problems.

It has some very simple pattern drafting, even explaining which buttons to push on a calculator to get the measurements you need. My daughter loves maths and this approach was right up her alley. On the day I brought this book home she made the diagonal halter without any help from me and was thrilled with how well it fit and how cute it looked. She also worked out the measurements she needed for the tiered eyelet skirt and cut out the fabric she required.

This is a great book and I can see it is going to be well-used by my daughter as she learns the basics of sewing her own clothes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Right on target! 27 Nov 2006
By P. Wales - Published on Amazon.com
My teenage daughter and her many friends have used this book numerous times to make the many items that Ms. Zent presents in her book. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. The items were low cost and my daughter actually wears them! "The girls" already have plans to get together over the Christmas break to work on more of these great ideas. Right on target for the age group this book was written for - Teenagers!

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit to compicated. 21 May 2012
By Daydreamer - Published on Amazon.com
I did learn some from this book like how to; sew a button hole, lock my stitch, and turn my fabric on the needle. However, the drawn example were hard to understand. And a lot of the steps didn't have an example at all. And I don't like how there is no patterns in the book. you have to measure and make them your self. This can be very difficult for a beginner machine sewer like myself.
