School Library Journal
Gr 7-10-Zent presents 21 projects and accessory designs that will appeal to budding seamstresses and novice stitchers alike, although teens should know the basics of using a sewing machine or have assistance. The book opens with sections on tools, sewing vocabulary, taking measurements, fabric styles, sewing techniques, maneuvering corners, and an icon key. Each project includes a section on calculations and measurement, a shopping list, cutting instructions, and tips on sewing with many types of fabrics. The step-by-step instructions include drawn renderings to assist with the construction and full-color photographs of teen models wearing each garment or accessory. For sewing material for the younger crowd, try Judy Ann Sadler's Sewing (Kids Can, 1997).-G. Alyssa Parkinson, Highland Township Library, MI Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
