I was very disappointed with this. I thought that it would have patterns in it, or recommend particular patterns, but it's just "make reversible tops so that you have two looks in one garment" sort of thing. Not particularly helpful (plus it might only be one garment, but it's twice the thickness, innit?)

How not to sew a travel wardrobe 16 July 2000
By M. Owens - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Don't be misled by the title of this book as I was. I was extremely disappointed. The book is filled with plenty of useful information about fabrics and places to travel, but not much on how to sew anything, much less a wardrobe! The book contains several photos of beautiful outfits, with no details on how to make them or even where to buy the pattern! Not worth the money or the effort to read, in my opinion!

Avid sewer and travel liked this book 24 Aug. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The fly on the jacket said "this book will be an inspiration and a big help." I found it to be both. Not all of the clothing by the various designers was to my personal taste but I could visualize their ideas with my own interpretation. I thought many of the items including the reversible pull-on pants, reversible jacket, four seasons vest and four-way reversible sleeveless tunic terrific and were alone worth the price of the book. I wish the book had gone even further as I would like to see more ideas for specific climates and both business and leisure travel.

Nice pictures, no instruction 31 Jan. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book was nice to look at, but aside from some accessories, there were no instructions other than to use a favorite pattern. Please! The clothes would look nice on some people, but not for most of us, and nowhere does the author address how you keep reversible blouses clean, since you can't very well put underarm shields in them.
You would be better off getting Sewing Express by Nancy Zieman, or buying some of Jasmine Hubble's books.
This book needs a deep discount, or be republished with instructions!

Wardrobe inspiration 20 Oct. 2007
By Patricia Clements - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have read this book every year since I purchased it in 1999. This year I plan to use the ideas for an at home casual wardrobe, and perhaps for a weekend vacation wardrobe as my husband says I pack too many "just in case" things that take up room but are never worn. There is much information about the choices and decisions that must be made when planning a wardrobe for travel and many of these are covered, including consideration for local customs and standards. There are a few sewing tips and inspirations but this not really a DIY instruction book. Many wardrobes are offered for viewing, and the time, money and frustration saving "six-yard basic wardrobe plan" is inspired.

Great! 15 Sept. 2013
By Tammy - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was surprised at how many great ideas this book has. I would sew a few of them just for everyday wear, not only for travel.
It's a good book to have in your sewing library.
