Sewing Basics is extremely helpful for someone just learning how to sew or someone getting back into sewing. It guides beginners through the entire sewing process, from preparing the fabric to mastering challenging techniques.

Details such as deciphering the back of a pattern envelope, setting up a cutting surface, and using a seam ripper are fully explained for the novice. Ordered seeps help sewers construct basic, simple garments that will suit any style, while full-color photos and drawings illustrate important points in each process.

Chapters progress from making the simplest of pull-on skiers and pants through to jackets, with new techniques introduced along the way. Handy troubleshooting rips help beginners avoid and correct mistakes. Every garment will turn out just right with the help of this essential reference, and even a novice will learn the skills to tackle any sewing project.

Anyone who wants to sew but doesn't know where to start will find this a friendly and complete guide.
