High-quality tailoring advice, low-quality book
on 1 September 2008
The authors' knowledge of tailoring is undoubtedly second to none, and this book takes you step by step through the entire process of tailoring a women's suit, with specific, easy-to-understand instructions and professional techniques. But buyer beware: the quality of this book is appalling for the price. It is B&W throughout. The photographs resemble poor-quality photocopies and are grainy, dark and hard to make out; the illustrations are rudimentary line drawings that occasionally border on the childish. If you are happy following well-written instructions, this book is a valuable addition to your sewing library; if you rely more on visual aids, it might not be the book for you.
