I bought this book out of interest as I have been making rubber garments for many years. Although it covers a lot of the basics it certainly is lacking great detail to help the beginner make even the simplest of items. No detail is present on how to fix your garments as you work on them, the same can be said for the step by step processes. Simply saying now join the pieces together is not really helpful!
Buy this book if you have no idea whats what about making rubber gear. If you have even the most slightest of experience you will not learn anything new from this book
There are better references online for free!

This book is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in latex clothing. The book is well illustrated throughout, as the author provides a step by step guide to producing latex garments beginning with materials needed and gluing simple seams, to inserting boning for corset making. No actual patterns are included with the book, but the illustrations show simple clothes being constructed, and there are guidelines on adapting other patterns to produce latex clothes. There is also a comprehensive suppliers section listing British companies that provide materials for all stages of the latex clothes making process. An excellent book.

Most people who have learned how to create latex clothing have done so through trial and error, underground classes, and cooperative efforts. Finally, there is a book which describes the process!
Sian-Kate Mooney has easy to understand examples and simple projects to get even the most basic beginner started.
Some of the extremely valuable hints I've learned from my own research are not presented in this book, nor is there a clear description about which adhesives and thinner need to be used (There is an index in the back which says what the adhisives and thinners are called, but there are easier-to-find alternatives out there. Namely, rubber cement and Bestine). So some other research for those items may be necessary for people with no previous introduction to the process.

I have been inspired to make my own rubber clothing since buying and reading this book, I am having a lot of fun and have since downloaded some lovely patterns for making rubber clothing from the internet, I would advise anybody interested to get a copy of this book to learn the basics before going on to something advanced.
