The step-by-step guide to each process and clear illustrations are, I would hazard, pretty much foolproof for any reasonably experienced dressmaker and the last chapter even covers basic sewing techniques for the less experienced.
The only minor deficiency, in my view, is the lack of a complete chart of industry-standard sizes when using the block patterns. It has to be said, though, that this might have been intentional, thereby forcing the user to check the measurements against their own before scaling up the blocks.
Would thoroughly recommend.
