3.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant but not great for me, 24 May 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Weekend Sewing: More Than 40 Projects and Ideas for Inspired Stitching (Hardcover)
I bought this book as I have recently begun sewing again after a long hiatus and I was attracted by the bright and funky looking designs. Plus one of the above reviews referred to the generous sizing of the patterns.

The book is pitched about right for a sewer of my level, with plenty of clear and helpful instructions. Unfortunately it is also almost entirely useless to me, as I fall outside the 'generous' sizing - the largest finished bust size in the book is a 43" and several of the patterns which I was most interested in only go up to a 40".

So, if like me you are a busty lady looking to make clothes which will actually fit and flatter - unlike the majority of the high street- I would suggest unless you know how to alter a pattern already or are prepare to just stop breathing for the sake of some really cute clothes, this is not the book for you.

That said, if you're lucky enough to fit within the parameters of the patterns, it's a really lovely book and I would definitely make some if not all of the clothes here. And the baby clothes and bags are gorgeous.
