A Must have!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Easy Guide to Sewing Tops and T-shirts, Skirts and Pants (Easy Guide) (Kitchen & Home)
I have received the book today and was mightily impressed with it. I feel compelled to write this review especially because you cannot preview this book on Amazon but I promise you it answers any questions you might have on sewing items, I literally looked at every single page of this book.
I particularly liked the section on adapting the fitting of trousers and how to make variations on the trousers patterns to allow for larger legs, hips, bust or tummy.
Lots of sections of measurements, body shapes and fitting as well. Good pics and drawings of sewing items.
Step by step guides on anything - sleeves, zips, all sorts!
It does not talk about dresses as such, but the section on the skirts and tops covers so much that you can actually construct a dress starting from there. Also there is quite a bit of info on how to create your own clothes and also working from patterns,I need to state the obvious here, but it does not include patterns because this is intended as an overall GUIDE on anything you might sew, but do not let this deter you from buying this book. you need to know how to sew what you want before you actually decide on a pattern.
It is a very complete guide, dare I say it a bible! Experienced people might be impressed with the quality of the items covered, but it is highly recommended especially for beginners and intermediate people. The book is very thorough on the items discussed. Therefore, I am very happy!
