I could not believe how much was packed into this handle little sewing guide! Clear pictures attached to full instructions in a step-by-step manner for you to understand each process. Installing zippers has always been my downfall. This book made it so easy to learn that technique! Buttonholes, piece of cake! This book even has a glossary of terms. At the back of the book you will find related websites and blogs to further your interest in the sewing hobby! Great for beginners too! I highly recommend this great book...
I received this book from blogging for books for this review.
