5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful and well written!, 31 Aug 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: S.E.W. Sew Everything Workshop (Spiral-bound)
I got a sewing machine 6 days ago. I got this book 2 days later. I had never been able to use a machine and didn't have a clue how to do anything sewing related, really. Four days on and I've shortened a pair of trousers! - which, for me, it was a major achievement! Not only that, I am confident I'll get better at it with a bit of practise and my trusty book! It is very well written and it does feel as if Diana Rupp is stood at the side of me, telling me what to do, as opposed to me reading a book.
Excellent, excellent, excellent!
(edited to add)Some reviewers have complained about the quality of the patterns but, in my opinion, they have been designed with beginners in mind. Yes, some of them lack shaping, but I am a beginner and don't feel I'm ready to venture into complex tucks, pleats and darts just yet.
I made the trousers for me and I love them! They are baggy and very comfy, thank you very much! And no, I don't have a dated and frumpy wardrobe...
