I really hated it. Don't waste your money. The illustrations are terrible. They are in a cartoonish maroon, pink, and grey. Visually, they are tough to swallow. The book gives alot of general sewing information that you can get anywhere on the internet for free. The book contains 5 projects. 3 seemed idiotic to me. The "ipod holder", the "box cushion", and the "scarf halter wrap around dress" (made to flatter any 15 year old body). The other two projects are drawstring pants and a tee shirt. The only thing I got out of this book was a headache trying to process the bizzare illustrations. You don't even get black print, you get greenish grey to match those fab illusrations and the cover. Everything in the entire book is grey, pink, or maroon.
It's like that's all they had to choose from and did the best they could with it. This book is what the Goodwill was made for. I would not even pay a quarter for it there.

I found this book to be very informative, easy to read and the projects to be a lot of fun and educational. I am an intermediate sewer and new to serging. Plus the website that the author, Elissa Meyrich, refers to is full of educational classes and tools. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to teach themselves to sew and serge and the included patterns are a great way to do that.

even though i know how to sew, i learned a lot... and it even had a section on sergers! I love the easy fit-any-size patterns that were included.

Given as given, recipient was pleased.

This book tries waaaaay too hard to be "hip" and "cool" and different from other sewing books (which I can only presume are not directed at younger people). I am in my 20s and this book still didn't appeal to me. The "modern" two-tone illustrations were a lot harder to figure out than photographs would have been, or even more detailed, less "artistic" illustrations would have been. I laughed out loud when I saw a pattern in the book for drawstring pajama bottoms had been titled "Hipster Pants" - it was just indicative of the "THIS BOOK IS HIP AND FUN - NO SRSLY!!!" flavor of the book. There were one or two useful diagrams but it wasn't anything you couldn't find for free on the internet, or discussed in more detail in a different book. It didn't help me out at all, nor did it clarify things or even entertain me. If you're a beginner looking for a comprehensive, clear and easy-to-understand book about sewing, then try "The Singer Complete Guide To Sewing".

I am not the young hipster demo these folks were going for, but I found this used and had to buy it. It would be good for a person who has some sewing experience on the beginner level, and that's JUST what it is for, and it states this in the cover info. It does follow on to the earlier book in the series. One reviewer hated the illustrations, which really amazed me. One of the outstanding things about this book *IS* the illustrations! They are clear, simply done in a modish modern style I love, and they actually HELP the learner learn. I like that this book first covers getting to know your machine, and that there are hand sewing techniques included when they are needed. I haven't tried a pattern, but the pants look like something basic that would be easy and comfy. The basic patterns are a great collection of easy garments in more comfy casual style, and you aren't overburdened with lots of the info included in many sewing books that frankly could turn a person off from sewing because of all the boggling detail their authors feel a sewist must go through. I do think the reason for the readability of this book is the author's life work in the garment industry and literally her presence in that territory in New York. The illustrator is terrific and from that same environment. I have to say I won't be doing that ottoman project, but it is really a unique piece, and I thought immediately of meditation cushions, as this pattern would make a lovely set of same with the right cushioning. Do take a look at the book if you are at all interested - money well spent.
I am a complete beginner to sewing and bought this book from a local bookstore because it contained simple patterns such as the drawstring pants. However the pieces once cut out did not fit together as shown in the accompanying pictures. As an example, the drawstring pattern is labelled as being "cut on the fold". Yet in the book the drawstring is NOT shown on the fold - so the reader is left to guess as to what they should do - not what a beginner needs. Then later on the reader is told to "cut the drawstring into two pieces". So why cut on the fold then? The front and back pant legs also do not fit together nicely as shown in the pictures in the book - again not what a beginner needs. If the pieces don't fit together how are you supposed to sew them together? I cut out the smallest size, so it's not possible that I made a mistake in cutting out different sizes for the pieces.

I'm really surprised that so many people have rated this book so highly - I can only assume they aren't beginners like I am. This book was expensive ($50 Australian) and definitely not worth it for me.
