Novice sewers will appreciate the guidance offered in buying a sewing machine and serger, selecting and working with patterns, fabrics, and other supplies, and the sewing essentials. Clear, close-up photos illustrate the "how-tos" of sewing collars and necklines, pockets, seams, sleeves, hems, buttons and buttonholes, and more.

If you ve ever feuded with yours (or if you ve even avoided making the acquaintance of one) you ll probably be ready to take it to a party by the time you re finished with this book. McWilliams takes the frustration out of all those previously unpleasant little tasks that kept you from the enjoyment of sewing: choosing equipment; altering patterns; working curves and corners; attaching collars, sleeves, cuffs, and plackets; making pockets and buttonholes; adding designer details; and more. Best of all, you ll be proud to wear your creations because they ll look professional, not homemade. --Amy Handy
