Save your money for something else more worthwhile
on 10 October 1999
I found the title of this book misleading. I was expecting techniques from the designers which I had never seen before, however, this was not the case. It looks more like the author has chosen techniques, illustrated them, and then looked for a designer who had used this technique. If you do a lot of sewing or tailoring give this book a miss. If you know how to do bound seams, stitch piping, topstitch a facing or make bias binding, you certainly don't need this book.
I did not learn anything new from this book, and I was highly disappointed.
I learnt far more from Easy, Easier, Easiest Tailoring by Pati Palmer and Susan Pletsch.
