Love, Love, Love this series so thought I'd get the book and have a go! This book is great, it advises you not only on the sewing, but types of fabrics etc. GreatPublished 28 days ago by Ruth Gosnay
Excellent. I've got all the books for the series and have made many garments. The instructions are good, and there are many sewing tips throughout. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Mitch
