Review:

Even sewing experts occasionally run into sewing emergencies, and for many of us they can happen all too often. If you're tired of coping with accidental snips, fabric shortages, bungled buttonholes, lopsided hems, gapping necklines, and any number of other mishaps, check out Barbara Deckert's Sewing 911. Loaded with practical advice and laced with humor, this terrific guide offers at-a-glance troubleshooting for more than 65 common sewing calamities. So the next time an ill-timed phone call causes an ironing accident or that pair of pants you worked so hard on winds up too short or too tight, instead of panicking or cursing (or both!), turn to Sewing 911 to rescue your garment with confidence. --Amy Handy
