Mark found this Vogue Sewing book for me at the second
hand book shop at Jimboomba.
I love reading through it.
Some of the photos are a bit dated, but the techniques are always useful.
Have you noticed that often patterns tell you to do something,
but don't actually tell you HOW to do it?
That's why you need a fantastic reference book like this.
( Or you come to class and I'll show you how of course)
The latest version is quite expensive, so keep your eyes out for old versions at second hand shops. I also have a McCalls and Simplicity version too.
The picture of the sewing machine features is quite basic, but those important features haven't really changed.
