I bought this book in paperback and could not put it down. If you are new to sewing, this is the book for you. It allows you to take existing clothes that you own (and that you know fit) and gives you steps on how to make a pattern from it. It even tells you ways to go about changing the collar, sleeves etc. I will be purchasing the ebook version to add to my library . PS .....the ebook version is ALOT cheaper than the paperback version I originally purchased.

Has some decent ideas on how to rig your own clothing cheaply and easily, but this is for very beginner sewers. If by "illustrated" she means quickly doodled line drawings then yeah.. its illustrated.
