I think books such as this one are quite limited, as it's likely that most readers will only be interested in a couple of the projects within them. Still, it's nicely organised, with each technique followed by a project. The big thing that lets the book down is the lack of useful photography – something that I would think is actually vital for anyone trying to decide whether or not they're interested in trying any of the projects.

I LOVE this book! Not only does it come with great tips and how to's but it also has patterns inside (not the pull out kind but still!). The illustrated patterns provide a great guide to creating your own sewing patterns using pattern grid. I love how the author promotes endless creativity with such simple but wonderful necessities to any wardrobe or home! This is a MUST HAVE for my library!!
This is a REALLY GOOD sewing book, taking basig garment techniques and explaining each one thoroughly. Each technique in the book has an accompanying project to complete to master the technique. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about basic traditional garment techniques.
