Review: Vogue and Butterick Step by Step Guide to Sewing Technique

Step by Step Guide to Sewing Techniques
5 Stars

This book is an absolute must-have for all seamstresses! It’s great for absolute beginners, all the way up to the experienced sewer who wants to learn little details they may have missed. It’s filled with tons of great images and diagrams, it’s organized alphabetically, and it’s easy to read and understand. Literally the only thing that could have made this better is if it were bound as a spiral bound book or a binder, so it would stay open.

This handbook covers all the different techniques, from basting to different types of machine/hand-sewing stitches, to seams, to zippers, to appliques… anything you can think of, it’s in here.

Absolutely recommend to anyone interested in garment sewing.

America’s favorite sewing guide is back and better than ever!

Long hailed as the dictionary of sewing, the Vogue/Butterick Step-by-Step Guide to Sewing Techniques has become even more exhaustive in this revised and updated edition.  Organized alphabetically, the guide is easy to navigate and features more full-color step-by-step illustrations than ever before.

Written by the editors of Vogue Knitting and Butterick Patterns, the guide has been continuously in print since its initial publication in 1989.  It became a bestselling classic and is still considered one of the finest sewing guides today.  With this newest edition comes even more expertise, making the Vogue/Butterick guide essential for any sewer – regardless of skill level!

Vogue Knitting is a highly respected quarterly publication focusing on knitting and crocheting news, tips, and tricks. Butterick Patterns is the premiere name in sewing patterns and celebrates its 150th anniversary this year.
