Review:

Making even some of your clothes can save money (especially if you have kids), and sewing skills come in handy for alterations and repairs on your store-boughts (maybe you need to put in a new zipper or a hem, or you want to get creative with some old clothes). After 20 years, this is still the best all-around handbook on the shelves for sewing. No matter what your level of expertise, you'll find something you can use here. Everything from basic handstitching to using a sewing machine to sewing simple and complex patterns for clothing, bedding, slipcovers and drapes (even pesky zipper applications seem reasonable here). This newly revised edition has a slew of detailed drawings, friendly instructions and several new additions including a color photo spread of more than 190 fabric types. -- From The WomanSource Catalog & Review: Tools for Connecting the Community for Women; review by Ilene Rosoff
