My sewing loving friend read through this book and afterwards informed me it would make a nice coffee table book but she could not recommend it for any serious sewing. I didn’t like all the seemingly random photographs mixed in among images of what you were supposed to be making, or the small sizes. Being a beginner with sewing I didn’t like the feel if the book for my needs, hence why I asked my sewing friend to look at it. We both agree there are plenty of other books out there on sewing and many just for people as green as I am. This is my opinion which may not mirror your own and that’s ok. I received an evaluation copy in exchange for an honest review.
