About this title

Synopsis:

From Library Journal Debut titles in Taunton Press's new sewing series, these guides take both new and experienced sewers completely through the construction process of a particular garment. Podolak, contributing writer to Threads Magazine, is quite expert in breaking down the construction of the jacket. Organization of chapters is very logical, starting with selection of style, fabric, and customizing fit. There is an outstanding section on pressing and shaping fabric. The presentation throughout is crisp, and photos and diagrams are frequent and well placed. Likewise a contributor to Threads Magazine, Tilton follows the exact same format, with special sections and help tips unique to the garment. Both texts are polished, professional, and wonderfully written. This series compares favorably with "Singer Sewing Reference Library" series, which focuses on fabrics, fit, children's wear, etc. Taunton's new series is all garment-specific, and though the format is redundant, it works well. Highly recommended for public libraries.?Karen Ellis, Baldwin Boettcher Lib., Humble, Tex.
