I am studying dressmaking by correspondence and I bought this book to assist me with the materials I receive from my college and I have to say it is the best investment I have made in a long time. The book is comprehensive, the pictures clear and the explanations are clear. I refer to this regularly in my studies and don't think I could live without it now!

Format: Paperback
Successive editions of Vogue Sewing have been the standard reference work for so long that it's difficult to find something original to say. It covers just about everything the home sewer needs to know, with particularly good sections on adapting patterns and getting a good fit. There are two short sections at the end of the book dealing with tailoring and couture techniques, but you will need to consult specialist works to get more information. One word of warning - making your own patterns is not covered, so once again, you will need to get a specialist book. My only niggles are that there are no references to men's clothing, and the women's clothing illustrated is a bit on the girly side. This doesn't detract from the technical information, but it does detract from the style of the book.You would expect something impeccably stylish when it carries the name Vogue!

Format: Paperback
I was not so sure when I bought this book. But I was looking for sewing advises. I am not a professional but I am a good seamstress. This book is perfect for me, and one thing that I really is the quality of the illustrations. It's really clear and easy to follow. The tips are good. I am very happy I purchased that book. Higly recommended for beguinners as well as good average!

Format: Paperback
There are many books written on the subject of sewing but few as comprehensive as this one. It takes you from the very basics such as choosing your equipment and fabric right the way through to tailoring and couture tecniques and doesn't miss a thing along the way. Whether you are new to the craft of dressmaking or have been sewing for quite a while this book comprehensively covers everything you need to know and explains it all in terms you will understand with helpfull illustrations just in case you don't. An absolute must for the avid sewer whether amateur or professional. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
I own the 1975 version, passed onto me by my mother when I was an enthusiatic teenager who could only sew a wobbly line. I go back to it again and again after nearly 20 years of dressmaking, especially for things I don't often do (what was the best way to do bound buttonholes again...). I rather like the retro chic of the original photos, but I guess an update is due.

Format: Paperback
I guess this book is something of a revamped classic. There's still traces of the "old school" left - such as the hilarious section that advises how to choose patterns "most becoming of your figure" but all in all, it contains pretty much everything you'll ever need to know in terms of techniques, with easy to follow pictures and instructions. The only thing I would say is that it's more aimed towards people using traditional patterns (Vogue, Simplicity etc) and doesn't have anything in the way of revamping old clothes or customising/personalising ready-made patterns, unlike some of the new generation sewing books that are coming out. But for general sewing techniques it's excellent.

Format: Paperback
I cobbled together various creations in my youth/student years, and moved back to high street as more money/less time took hold. The sheer frustration of poor fitting items in shoddy fabric has got the sewing machine out again, but this time I need quality items which aren't destined for the student union. This book is super - it starts from the very basics. It will teach you tips you hand't thought of, and explains the difference between a good item and a great one. Most importantly for me, it explains how to alter patterns and tackle shape "problems" rather than assuming everyone is a conventional size and shape. A classic.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A book for sewers of all levels of competence. Buy it as a beginner with your first machine, and you'll still be referring to it 20 years later. Its information is timeless and correct, whatever the current fashion or fabrics and whatever you might be sewing.

The only tiny criticism I have is that it is awkward to use when actually following instructions on specific techniques for the first time; I need to use bulldog clips to hold it open. I would prefer it to be spiral-bound for that reason only.
