I have not been sewing long, but I found this book extremely helpful. The ideas that are included are very versatile and can be adjusted to fit your personal style and taste. The full color illustrations and photos are a get help in mastering sewing techniques. I wish I had this book months ago!
This is the book that taught me to sew! I had never even so much as touched a sewing machine or picked up a needle and thread when I read this book. The instructions were SUPER easy to follow. And the tips on sewing were spot on. I read the book first. Then, picked out a simple project, and I was off. I still wear the first skirt I made 2 years ago. Out of the skirts in here, I only disliked 2. The rest I have actually made either for myself or my mom.
5 stars. Would recommend it to both beginners and intermediate sewers. I still use this book even though now I am eons away from the beginner I used to be.

This book makes sewing custom-fit skirts a breeze. It is easy to read and has lively illustrations. The sample skirts are beautiful, but they don't limit you to having to be just like the sample. Rather, they are inspiring and encouraging for the reader to create her own custom looks. Definitely a keeper for me.

This was a cool book. I loved the different patterns of skirts you can make! Most of them are really cute. :-) Also, none of them require having a pattern! You make your own pattern to custom fit it to you.
