First off I want to say that I do like this book however it just didn't wow me like I was expecting. The pictures are nice and instructions detailed and informative but the patterns are my big gripe. Some of the patterns came on paper but are printed double sided, so you've got to copy them before you cut! Other patterns are just in the book and you have to copy them then enlarge them to use them. The garments featured are cute but I expected more variety. Also some of the styles I like don't even have an actual pattern just a lame "go to the store and buy a vintage garment then sew it to another garment" WTF! Aggravating to say the least. Overall its a nice flip through kind of book but your not going to get much else from this book.
I had high hopes for this book, and I have to admit that I'm disappointed so far. Other reviewers have already mentioned having to copy the patterns, but I'll mention it again: the patterns included in the book's back pocket are printed on both sides of the paper, so they require tracing anyway. (If your sewing room is already equipped with the materials to do this, then it may not be an issue for you.) Many others are printed on the book's pages, requiring you to go to a copy shop and enlarge them. Personally, I don't care to have the men who run my neighborhood Kinkos know what kind of undergarments I wear. I was also disappointed to learn that some of the "patterns" whose pictures I liked were not constructed from scratch. Instead, there are instructions on how to alter a slip by changing it's length or adding embellishments, or how to tack a lace doily onto a store-bought bra and panty set. These seem more like arts and crafts projects than sewing, and it counters one of the main...
My wife really wanted to like this book, but it just disappointed. In a nutshell, this book gives instructions for making a select few pieces of lingerie. Much to my wife's chagrin, the cutest pieces in the book were NOT included in the instructionals. They were background items worn while modeling the featured piece. If the book had instructions on all of the pieces worn, then it would be a great buy. As it is, I suggest you look elsewhere.
