Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book and I would highly recommend it. I have dabbled with making my own clothes in the past and have always ended up with skirts that are either too big or too small. This book has enabled me to make a skirt that fits me perfectly and I managed to finish it in a couple of hours. It gives details for each step in easy to follow directions and has very useful pictures for each step too. I would say that this book would be just as useful to a more experienced dressmaker and the fact that it has the pattern with the book certainly makes it worth while as you can make and adapt different templates from the one pattern to make many different skirts from length to style. When I was looking at other books I found that many of them directed you to print out patterns from a website so the fact that the pattern was included was a great plus for me too.

This is a cracking book. It covers everything you need to know to get you started on sewing a skirt. Very good tutorials on adjusting darts, making ruffles, inserting an invisible zip, adding lining.

Includes good quality pattern, clear diagrams and is written in a chatty 'can do' tone.

I've bought several of the new generation sewing books lately and this is the one I use most. I think this will become a word of mouth hit.

Cutting out and copying patterns a bit fiddly.
