There are many average beginning sewing books, and this is another one. I preferred the original edition of this book, it had more style to it, in line with the Vogue Pattern line.

Only for beginners. Nothing challenging or interesting anymore.

I have used several reference guides on sewing and this book is one of the best. I'm an experience sewer so I know what I'm talking about. The descriptions and illustrations are clear and all the basics are covered. This is an excellent book for beginner to advance.
