Good basic premise,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Famous Frocks hc (Hardcover)
A friend bought this second-hand for around £10 so when I saw it on Amazon brand new for the same price I snapped it up. Not sure why some reviewers are groaning, you can't buy two decent sewing patterns for £10 so having 10 for the same price is good value. OK, you are not going to make every dress in the book but if you are a capable sewist I think this is a good one for the shelf. Each pattern is a beginner/intermediate level version of the famous dress, it's up to you to embellish or improve with your own skill. So for instance the Madonna dress with lace bodice has no boning, you would have to adapt the pattern if you wanted this feature. I don't find this a problem.
Some fun dresses and interesting notes about construction.
