I bought the book for all the raving reviews. When I started reading it, it was like my eyes were glued to the pages. I am a visual learner and this book has great illustrations and tons of photographs. This book is based on a tissue fitting and It defiantly prevent some of the major problems in sewing pattern.
The one thing I love about this book is that they don't base it on skinny models, this book shows a wide variety of models tall, short, kids, and adults. This book covers everything but pants, for pant you have to get Pants for real people.
