    Comments about The Sewing Book:

    This is a great book with great illustrations that takes you through all steps in an easy to follow manner. My only (slight) critique is whilst it shows all the steps, it doesn't show the final pic of how it should look once complete. I would recommend this book highly though, great glossy pics that clearly show you step by step instructions. I would definitely buy it again and recommend it highly to others.

      Comments about The Sewing Book:

      I bought this book for my daughter who lives in Australia and was interested in learning how to sew as she could nof find the types of clothes she had been able to purchase in the United Kingdom. She must be serious as she has bought a sewing machine and made various clothes. One of the things he made was a jewellery wrap from a pattern in the book, this was a birthday gift for someone and the finished result looked very professional
