I have had this book for a while, and an still finding new things in it that I did not know before. This book helps the new and experienced sewer with pattern selection, fitting and alterations, and nearly every sewing technique, from invisible zips, cuffs and collars to specialist fabrics like leather and fur.
The illustrations and instructions are nice and clear, and the garment photographs are taken from the current Vogue pattern range, unlike some sewing books that seem stuck in the 80's!
There is even a guide to stain removal to keep your hard work looking pristine. If you are new to sewing, it will help to build your confidence. If you have been doing this for a while, I would still recommend it for those 'how do you do that again?' moments we all have when we have not done something for a while.
This is without doubt the most thorough book on my shelf, and excellent value for money. An essential.

By A Customer on 3 Aug. 2004
What a great book! I always get nervous buying 'textbooks' online without being able to browse them first - but I'm so pleased I choose this one!
Vogue Sewing is a great book - not only about sewing techniques but about fabric, colour, texture and all the other 'technical' elements of clothing design.
I especially like the section on determining what body type you have, and advice on designing clothes to suit.

I searched everywhere for a copy of an even older edition which I had borrowed from a library when making my wedding dress and after reading reviews of this edition on Amazon decided to buy it. The book is an absolute boon and must-have reference work for anyone wanting to make clothes: there are plenty of instructions on fitting, lining etc and although the photographs of garments are a bit dated many of them are classics. Well worth the money: you will save it quickly by avoiding mistakes and getting a superior professional finish to your projects. The writers do not assume knowledge but nor is it patronising.
