I have been sewing "for real" for 50 years, and have done everything from underwear to men's suits and bridesmaid dresses, and I still learned several things from this book. At this moment, the most useful information is how to replace a zipper in jeans without taking the waistband apart to do so. I am buying my own copy of this book.
