This review is from: DIY Couture: Create Your Own Fashion Collection (Paperback)
I absolutely loved this book! This book has a really neat and easy to understand layout that follows the author's appraoch to sewing - a visual activity needs visual understanding. The first section goes through basic sewing techniques and the equipment that you will need throughout the book. Again, these sewing instructions are very easy to understand and the book uses both visual and literary explanations throughout.

The second and main section goes through the garment construction. There is a lot of inspiration from this book as the reader gets to see the author's interpretations of her garments, which can then be transferred to your own garments when planning what to sew. The pretty interesting part of this book I found were the techniques used. The book says 'no patterns required' and that is absolutely true! All you really need are some of your own clothes and a measuring tape.

I think this book is perfect for anyone who is interested in sewing. If you are a beginner, this is an ingenious book which will start you off at the basics and even if you're more advanced, it's pretty inspirational.
