While this is not the book for someone who is still trying to master threading their sewing machine, it is outstanding for the experienced beginner to advanced admirer of the sewing arts. Mr. Coffin has produced another excellent book pertaining to the construction of men's clothing. He is meticulous in describing in detail the construction of men's and ladies pants in this book. I have not seen any other book except Mr. Coffin's book on shirts give such a clear explanation of sequence and sewing technique. While he does not cover all possible approaches to sewing pants he presents his solution in a very understandable and readable manner. The illustrations are very clear and allow the reader to understand the process used without having to try sewing a sample and then puzzle over what the author really meant. I found that I could read the text, look at the illustration, think a bit and then understand how he sewed items such as pockets and flies.

I purchased this book for my nook color. I consider myself an advanced sewer. I find this book very informative. So much so that I order the Shirtmaking book. I order the second book in paper format (from another vendor) as the nook download did not include the accompanying DVD. It is easy to assume that since the DVD is digital, it would be downloaded with the book. Unfortunately, the author makes constant reference to the DVD that was not included. The good news is I love the book enough to buy it again in it's paper form. DO NOT BUY the NookColor version. Consider yourself warned. You will want the fullness of this book (meaning with the DVD)!
