I've been sewing
for a while but I'm self-taught and sometimes I just get caught up on the
beginner details. I chose The Vogue/Butterick Step By Step Guide To Sewing
Techniques. I looked at all of the others very carefully and found that this
one provided the most niggly details on the my specific problem areas
(collars, cuffs, buttonholes).
I really liked the Reader's Digest book and it was a toss-up between choosing
this one and the Vogue/Butterick one. What made the decision for me was the
Vogue/Butterick one is a more recent publication. The Reader's Digest book
hasn't been updated since the 70's and it shows. The V/B book is 1989.
