101 Great Ways to Sew a Metre contains some beautiful, modern designs. I am a beginner to sewing, but did find the instructions and illustrations clear. The book also includes a wallet of patterns. The book is very well-designed. It is spiral-bound so it lays flat which is very handy when you have your hands full of pins and fabric. There are plenty of patterns in the book. The patterns include clothes, household bits and bobs and stuff for kids. My one big disappointment with the book is that it uses imperial measurements. I had heard about the American version of this book and was delighted when I saw that they were re-publishing it for a non-US audience. The title has been changed from 'yard' to 'metre' and I assumed the patterns would also be converted to metric. Unfortunately it is only the title that has been changed. Whilst I can still work out the measurements, I don't think in yards and inches so I was a bit disappointed.
