I have been sewing clothes for over 30 years. However, now that I'm of a certain age and my body shape is not what it was in the years BC (before children), I have had real problems fitting for myself, especially where compound alterations were necessary.
I love this book, I have overcome some of the fitting problems I had. There is always something new to learn in sewing and there is always someone who may do things differently, which can save time and effort. I will make use of this book often and refer to it frequently.
The only reason I did not give it a 5 star review is that I simply do not like the way it is bound. This is a reference book, it will be opened and closed a lot. I don't think the binding will stand up to that kind of frequent use. Spiral binding would have been better to allow the pages to lay flat.
A particular delight to me was the section on drafting, I had been having fits trying to work this out from another book, I had my first trouser block drafted in about an hour. This was a real bonus.
As other reviewers have said, if you subscribe to threads you probably have read all of this book, I don't and although I have come across one or two articles online, this is a book worth having - no matter what your skill level.

Arrived on time for Christmas gift. Book as expected from the Threads team. This book contains articles that have featured in the magazine but rather than rummaging through back issues it is now easier to just select from the book as all the articles are in one place.

The book was as expected from such a reputable dressmaking source as Threads. The articles are very helpful and well illustrated. The customer service and deliver were very good.
