Only let down by black and white line drawings in the diagrams - some of them are a little hard to follow.
This book is packed and you'd have to use it for reference - bedtime reading it ain't!
If the publishers were ever to update and re-print the book I'd recommend that they number each "Tip" - and add a notes section to the front or back of the book, so the reader could easily jot down the number of their favourite tip :)
P.S. I also own PatternReview.com: 1000 Clever Sewing Shortcuts and Tips: Top-Rated Favorites from Sewing Fans and Master Teachers (which has tips from real-life sewers, as well as in depth tutorials and how-to's by long standing experts) - and if you enjoyed the Claire Shaeffer book, then the PatternReview.com book is like modern day equivalent - they pair-up very well together, and are both favourites in my sewing library.
The information in this book is divided into chapters where particular areas are concentrated on, making this a book to dip in and out of very easily.
This is a very useful book for any sewer and although Claire Schaeffer is associated with couture the clear instructions and diagrams make this book accessible to novice sewers too.
Any Claire Schaeffer book is worth it's place on your shelf and this one is no exception.

I would expect a step by step pictures rather than descriptions. That would be so much more helpful!Published on 22 July 2014 by Sarka
