Straight forward explanations and clear diagram's make this this book easy to follow.
In my opinion, a copy should be in every sewers kit !
Overall I was not hugely impressed when comparing it to the others.
I would advise anyone looking for a sewing book to add 'The Complete Book of Sewing (Needlecraft)by Alison Smith'
to their collection, even if you do go ahead and buy this dummies book.
This book is the ideal companion whether you are a novice or need to brush up on your skills. I don't know what I'd do without it now!
This book is great for filling in all those gaps such as using patterns, choosing threads and other bits. It would be OK too for a beginner, but as this is a large subject, you may want to have this as a partner book alongside something in more depth. But if you have vague memories, and a little skill, then you shouldnt need anything else. Like all Dummies books, this can be read straight, or just dipped into. Well worth the money, which is less than the cost of even half a decent garments material and findings.
