Customer Review

on 15 February 2010
Successive editions of Vogue Sewing have been the standard reference work for so long that it's difficult to find something original to say. It covers just about everything the home sewer needs to know, with particularly good sections on adapting patterns and getting a good fit. There are two short sections at the end of the book dealing with tailoring and couture techniques, but you will need to consult specialist works to get more information. One word of warning - making your own patterns is not covered, so once again, you will need to get a specialist book. My only niggles are that there are no references to men's clothing, and the women's clothing illustrated is a bit on the girly side. This doesn't detract from the technical information, but it does detract from the style of the book.You would expect something impeccably stylish when it carries the name Vogue!
