    Recommended - Check this out if you are interested in making your own dresses.

    If you are serious about sewing and want to take it to a more advanced and creative level, then this book is for you. It starts out easy, with tips for beginners and progressively becomes more advanced. I am a novice sewer myself, and I purchased this book to improve my skills and to learn how to make my own sewing patterns. However, I would suggest that you have at least a basic knowledge of sewing before purchasing this book.
