Customer Reviews

Instructions are to the point and illustrated very well.

This book is the perfect transition from the beginners sewing book to a more advanced level.
@lilysomething
Nonetheless, this book is definitely a good foundation volume for a home sewing library.

Format: Paperback
IF, that is, you're looking for a book that goes into further detail than the standard beginner's sewing book. My mother, who taught Beginner's and Advanced sewing for decades (after earning a full scholarship to the Art Institute of Chicago straight out of high school for her sewing skills), told me that this was a book that she recommended to her advanced (high school) sewing classes, so it may not be the easiest book to just flip through and use off the cuff, but it definitely is an extensive book that brings in not just the craft of sewing, but the actual art of it - something that I, as an artist and art teacher, find to be very important. And my mom just couldn't say enough about what an excellent sewing resource this book is.

My first sewing book was The Complete Book of Sewing New Edition, which IS great for visual references on what the tasks you're undertaking should look like throughout the process, but I found it to be very bare bones when it came to answering my "okay, sooo, WHY am I doing this again, instead of doing that???" type questions. "Vogue Sewing" answers all of those questions for me, as well as offering very helpful hints on how to properly tailor a garment to your specific figural requirements, how to remove specific stains, why to use one fabric over another, what the differences are between a variety of fabrics.... and I got all of this from simply skimming through the book!

Format: Paperback
I really like this book because it goes into advanced alterations which is what a lot of other sewing books lack. I was surprised to find out that it has that as a section, being that this is a general sewing book. But it's more than that, there's also couture sewing techniques and a section on how important color is, and guidance on choosing the right colors. That's also something I have a hard time with.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book based on many recommendations from various popular sewing blogs. This book covers quite a lot of ground on many aspects of home sewing, from determining your figure type and choosing your pattern size, to hand and machine sewing techniques, to basic pattern alterations for fit, to tips for working with difficult fabrics, and ends with a wide selection of tailoring and couture techniques and creative touches. It really is very comprehensive, and just jammed full of information. To fit all that information in this book, I feel like they had to sacrifice a little bit of clarity. For example, all the pattern alteration instructions are illustrated with a single line drawing that gives an overview of the changes being made, and the new lines being drawn on the pattern are highlighted in this really thick orange line that sometimes obscures other changes being made in the area. The multi-step instructions that have multiple illustrations are also formatted a bit strangely. Each step is a bullet point, and the accompanying illustrations are numbered, but the text never refers to the illustrations by number, and there is not always an illustration for each bullet point, so you just kinda have to figure out which goes with what. It's definitely not an impossible task, and I think you can get all the information presented if you're willing to sit there and digest it for a bit, but it's definitely not the most user-friendly presentation I've ever seen. Nonetheless, this book is definitely a good foundation volume for a home sewing library. I wouldn't say this is the only book you will ever need, but if it is the first sewing book you get, it will build a great foundation for your sewing skills, and take you quite far.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
This book has a lot of plusses. It goes into great detail on a huge variety of sewing procedures, with a lot of illustrations. If I am doing something I don't do often, I definitely pull out the book to review before I start cutting or sewing. My criticism of the book is its vocabulary. A lot of the time it uses what I would have to call sewing jargon. I don't know what the terms mean. Sometimes I can look them up. Sometimes the illustrations alone will suffice. More often, I pull out my trusty Reader's Digest Complete Guide to Sewing and review the same procedure. If you are a sophisticated seamstress, and understand all the sewing terms, this book will be beyond helpful; it's essential. If, like me, you are a sometimes seamstress with no formal training, the book can make you feel like you're in over your head.

Format: Paperback
This book covers a lot of useful info about sewing, but the illustrations and instructions are confusing and difficult to follow. The book has only 2-color illustrations and no photos. I ended up having to buy another book, DK "The complete book of sewing", it is much better and at Amazon, it's almost the same price as this one. I wish I could return this Vogue book, but after shipping fees are discounted, it's just not worth the trouble.
