    I love it!!!

    The instructions are easy to follow and thorough. I appreciate the resources in the back and the project patterns. Great book on all the techniques of sewing.

    Awesome!

    I love this comprehensive bible of techniques! This is a great resource that I will use over and over again, and it's super easy to follow the instructions because photos detail every step. I also love the modern touches in the book, there is a section that talks about upcycling your wardrobe, and some of the projects use old shirts and things you probably already have at home. I'm very happy with this purchase!
