A must for any beginner,
This review is from: The Sewing Book (Hardcover)
I was looking for a dressmaking book that showed me how to do everything, but from a beginner's persepctive and I think that this book is great to have if you are just starting out sewing or if you have been doing it for years.
It not only shows you how to read patterns, but make admendments as well as all the different types of sewing techniques available.
It gives a brief overview of fabrics and sewing machines; how to thread them; how to plan your pattern on the material.
It is easy to read and follow with step by step instructions.
It also gives you little projects to do at the end of each chapter.
I was very impressed with this book, and would defibitely recommend it.
