I really wanted to find a book that would show me how to use a sewing machine, what materials I need, and eventually patterns.
This book has all that and much more!!
I am so pleased I bought this book, the best parts about it for me are how great the pictures are and clearly labelled... like a page of different trims, a page of needles... it's so clear and simply laid out but with enough information!
I think this book is suitable for a complete beginner, but also for people who want to brush up on their skills.
Arrival was prompt and my book was in excellent condition.
A fantastic resource, if like me, you need spoonfeeding with your dressmakng.
Fantastic service and I will be recommending to all of my friends and family!
