Sort order. Jan 08, Amy Etzel rated it it was amazing. Definitely a keeper. Although this is a thoroughly comprehensive guide to all things sewing related complete with step by step instructions for every technique possible I did find it a little cold and impersonal and very much aimed at the serious sewing market rather than at the hobby market.
I found the instructions clear but confusing on occasion as many of the terms used and the occasions when certain techniques are and aren't used weren't always explained. The section on mending was the most useful and the most Although this is a thoroughly comprehensive guide to all things sewing related complete with step by step instructions for every technique possible I did find it a little cold and impersonal and very much aimed at the serious sewing market rather than at the hobby market.
The section on mending was the most useful and the most clear to me as I could see why repairs were carried out in the manner they were. I found the projects interesting but nothing really stood out for me, it's aim seemed to be making shop quality items with no hint of being home-made. That said if that is what you want then this is definitely the book for you and I am sure that there is a little something in here for everyone, you just have to be patient in finding it.
Sep 10, Margie rated it liked it Shelves: Good, solid reference. Doesn't deviate too far into specialized techniques, but far enough that the beginner sewer will find lots of goodies Hong Kong finishes, welt pockets, Canadian smocking, etc. The pictures are helpful, but could have been vastly improved by using higher contrast fabric and contrasting threads.
View 1 comment. Sep 13, Heidi rated it it was ok Shelves: This book is basically a dictionary of sewing techniques with a few projects at the end. It describes the "proper" way to do things. It was not what I was looking for; I felt it was lacking in describing when you might want to choose one technique over another as well as why a garment might be designed a certain way. A useful reference, but not one to really teach me how to sew garments. Good overview of all the basics for sewing clothes and some furnishings, plus a couple of projects to test out the techniques in the book, but I would've preferred slightly more detailed tutorials for the more difficult techniques.
Apr 13, Cara rated it it was amazing Shelves: I didn't have time to use this book while I had it checked out from the library, but it seems like the Bible of sewing! Lots of really detailed, step-by-step how-to's. I almost want to download this book just to have as reference for whenever I do sew!
Mar 18, Luanne Ollivier rated it it was amazing.
I'm a self taught sewist, always looking to improve on my skills and discover new ideas and techniques. I was quite excited to explore the pages of The Sewing Book - "more than step by step techniques. How to Use Patterns. Projects for the Home and to Wear. DK books excel at presenting information and ideas.
The Sewing Bible was no exception. The images presented are full colour photographs. They are crisp, clean images that let you see I'm a self taught sewist, always looking to improve on my skills and discover new ideas and techniques.
They are crisp, clean images that let you see easily see the details, such as the thickness of different threads and the different types of fabrics.
The accompanying information is clear and concise. The layout makes it easy to read. I sewed a lot of my children's clothes when they were young using commercial patterns.
I've never attempted to create or alter patterns for myself, which is something I'd like to try. The section covering this was excellent. The actual sewing process is detailed as well - stitches. There was a great little pattern for a simple tote bag at the end of this chapter to practice I have lots of scraps I could use up here! Subsequent chapters deal with the different techniques of sewing clothes.
Again, excellent directions and accompanying photographs.
I preferred these over drawn illustrations. There are more small projects to practice more skills such as zippers, linings, buttons and more. A small unit on mending was also included. Patterns and an index complete the book. The Sewing Book is an excellent resource for both novice and experienced sewists.
And it's the quality of information and product that I've come to expect and appreciate from DK. Encyclopedic, easy to read, wonderful photographs, this is my idea of a perfect sewing book. DK always uses high-quality photographs, and has sensible sized fonts. I have been looking around for an all-in-one sewing help book, and I have decided that this is the one for me. It is large, like most DK books, and very heavy, but I think I will put it next to my sewing table, and can imagine referring to it repeatedly.
And, as a complete novice to sewing with a machine, it is worth the 36USD to me. Apr 17, Erin rated it it was amazing. Love the How-To images. Sewing must have been what they were talking about when they first said that a picture is worth a thousand words. I wouldn't have been able to do it with words alone! Nov 23, Yadana rated it it was amazing. This was a very exciting book.
I would recommend it to my class. Jun 08, Jec rated it really liked it.
