Sew U, is a nine-chapter book written by Wendy Mullen (Built by Wendy's designer). Sometime ago, she saw the need to write a book for those of us who are tired of looking at cheap clothes at high street stores and being clones, or who simply want to be creative.
The first five chapters explain everything about the tools, sewing machine, fabric types, patterns and cutting. She also remarks how important is to be organized.
The next three chapters are dedicated to the skirt, shirt and trousers, appearing in order of difficulty. At the end, there are patterns enclosed for each type of garment. The last chapter explains how to work with your tailor.
My only complaint about the book, is the lack of a dress pattern.
