The Great British Sewing Bee: Sew Your Own Wardrobe

Price: £11.99

1.0 out of 5 stars The pattern pieces seem not to be accurate and the instructions are worse. For a BBC book to end up in ..., 12 April 2015

I thought it was me not understanding the instructions ... then I went back and read some of the reviews!. The book is a disaster for the complete novice. The pattern pieces seem not to be accurate and the instructions are worse. For a BBC book to end up in print like this is a sign of the times I suppose. Buy very cheap calico and learn from your mistakes!!

1.0 out of 5 stars not as good as we are told, 29 Mar. 2013

These boots are not as good as the hype would have you believe. In time ( not much time ) the uppers will split. Boots shouldn't do this regardless of treatments etc. By far the worse problem though is the sole which is very thin, or wears very thin in the ball of the foot area. They also split so letting in water. Water into the uppers, water into the sole ... not good!

3.0 out of 5 stars lacking essential detail, 18 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good read but I found myself wondering what made Merckx so good. A section on Merckx's power on a bike would have been fascinating. Was it ever documented? Did he submit to scientific testing? What was his racing weight? What was his bike geometry? What did his bike weigh?

A very good book for the keen home mechanic.

Version 2 should cover more.

This is a good place to start if you are interested in bike mechanics.
