    I already had a basic concept of sewing. I found myself having difficulty trying to reproduce a pattern that didn’t have all the elements I needed. I bought this book anyway not thinking I was going to learn anything new. Svetlana breaks it down in simpler terms and I was able to approach projects and trying things in a more simplistic manner. I was doing it the hard (and expensive) way. She reuses patterns alot, but you wouldn’t know that judging her intricate costumes. There’s a reason why she can build costumes quickly. I recommend this book.

    It’s indeed a great book to start with if you want to start sewing! It gives very clear and simple explainations on how to read and edit patterns, and simple sewing techniques. It helped enormeously sewing my first (albeit simple) cosplay project, and it opened the way for moe challenging projects. Looking forward to the advanced sewing book!
