I really love the concept of this book - that succesful sewing is as easy as sewing in a straight line. There is good information up front in this book for beginners on everything from tools to techniques and the author writes from her own personal sewing experience. The projects definitely have a modern style, and although I don't care for all of the garment projects (I do like the Sewing School Skirt) it is good to see a book for beginners that includes a variety of clothing. I do love the Magic Sewing Kit, the 9 to 5 Folder, and the Bucket Tote and plan on making at least one of each of those projects. The best thing about this book is the uncluttered way it is presented with clear illustrations and nice photographs. Good for beginners and even better for confident beginners who already have a little sewing experience under their belt.
