That being said it is a nicely presented. The photographs in the book are of the finished items and the instructions are drawn. The templates are clear and easy to find.
I do have one small issue with the book, but it is minor and I say it about almost every sewing book I purchase. I wish there were a few different pictures of a couple of the projects. Most are photographed sufficiently, but I think on two of them I said to myself that it would be nice to see it from such-and-such an angle...I know it's hard to get every angle in for every project without going overboard though, so this is very minor to me.
Another aspect that can be annoying is that she does not clearly define some of the steps, which was disappointing to me since her patterns for children's clothes are AMAZING and she is very meticulous about the directions. I was excited to get this book, but after doing a few of the projects it went on the shelf due to being poorly edited and too frustrating to deal with.
