4.0 out of 5 stars A good guide for young dressmakers, 23 Jun. 2014
This review is from: Love at First Stitch: Demystifying Dressmaking (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This an excellent book to teach you how to start dress making. It is clearly set out with lots of good tips. (Did you know that a slightly darker thread is less noticeable than a lighter one?) It demystifies how sewing machines work and has clear instructions, with diagrams, as to how to thread one up. It lists equipment that you are likely to need and each project refers back to the list so that you will never find yourself stuck halfway through a project without the right tools.

The projects are clearly differentiated as far as difficulty is concerned, so if you are a novice, I would suggest that you work your way through the book rather than diving into the middle.

My only argument is with the projects, which don’t, on the whole, appeal to me, but I don’t think they are meant to. The book is definitely aimed at the young – mid to late teens to twenties – and the projects are designed for this age group. So, if you are getting on a bit, buy the book, read all the good advice then give it to a young friend or relation.
