Overview

Sewing Basics is extremely helpful for someone just learning how to sew or someone getting back into sewing. It guides beginners through the entire sewing process, from preparing the fabric to mastering challenging techniques.

Details such as deciphering the back of a pattern envelope, setting up a cutting surface, and using a seam ripper are fully explained for the novice. Ordered seeps help sewers construct basic, simple garments that will suit any style, while full-color photos and drawings illustrate important points in each process.

Chapters progress from making the simplest of pull-on skiers and pants through to jackets, with new techniques introduced along the way. Handy troubleshooting rips help beginners avoid and correct mistakes. Every garment will turn out just right with the help of this essential reference, and even a novice will learn the skills to tackle any sewing project.

Anyone who wants to sew but doesn't know where to start will find this a friendly and complete guide.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Moyes teaches beginning sewing classes at The Sewing Workshop in San Francisco, and this book is designed to make much of the content of her workshops available to the beginning sewer learning at home. In fact, the last chapter--"Making a Kimono in Five Easy Lessons"--duplicates one of her five-session beginning sewing classes. All instruction is project-oriented, as the reader moves from pull-on pants and skirts to T-shirt, tops, and vests to easy blouses and jackets. Without including an overwhelming amount of detail, Moyes covers each step of the garment-making process, using color photographs and line drawings to advantage. An excellent choice for public libraries and sewing collections. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
