The book itself is in a useful spiral bound format so you can easily leave it open on the page you are working from whilst sewing. There are detailed descriptions and advice accompanied by coloured diagrams and pictures. The only thing that makes it seem a little dated to me is that there are no photos in the book at all. I'm used to glossy photograph filled books and the lack of photos did make this look a little drab in contrast. That said it is a very useful reference guide that I will certainly be keeping hold of.
This review also appears on The Sewing Directory.
The majority of the diagrams/instructions are printed onto, or in a very dark blue, making the black text difficult to read - a very bad idea!!
I already own a Simplicity sewing book which I purchased in 1978 and this is far better, clearer and more informative than this version. I think I will be reverting back to using that rather than this so called more up-dated version.
It's awful, I hate everything about it.
Gives a detailed instruction on how to read patterns and what information is on them
Thoughts about how to use the patterns and opinions on fabric choices is explained
