Ich nähe jetzt schon seid einiger Zeit, komme mit den simplen Sachen zurecht ABER es gibt immer was zu lernen! Und es gibt viele Dinge die ich bis vor diesem Buch nicht verstanden habe. Ich kann es nur weiterempfehlen :D

I just bought this book a few minutes ago and I have only really skimmed through it but already it looks like a much easier guide to follow than some of the other books out there. For a beginner like me long books about sewing can be overwhelming and not simplified enough (at least for me) so this is perfect! It’s not overly complicated and has plenty of pictures for a visual learner like myself. I can’t wait to try the Monk pattern out (once the fabric stores open back up that is)!

This book is fantastic! I wish I got the physical copy so I could enjoy it more. It’s filled with useful information with instructions that very concise, easy to understand and fun to read- you can hear the personality from the page. The pictures are relevant and helpful refrences. Even if you have some knowledge of sewing I think you can benefit from the tips this book has to offer. The dress pattern manipulation was my favorite take away (because it will save me money in the long run). Make your life easier, buy this book!
Also, 5 stars on service. I typo-ed my email address and didn’t receive the download link, but the payment went thru (my fault!). After reaching out, the issue was resolved in a few hours. Kind, quick, efficient service. Always been a fan, ecstatic to be a customer.

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 an excellent book for beggineers, even my wife who really don’t read english well can understand it only with the images, and can do great things, thank you Svetlana!!!
Very good book to start sewing! The explanations are clear and easy to follow!
The book is lovely, detailed and very informative, can’t wait to try my hands at making my own clothing for cosplay. Highly recommend
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!
