This novel book for home sewers offers advice and direction on how they can alter existing patterns to create their own unique designs. The step-by-step directions are easy to follow and give help in creating a variety of collars, necklines, sleeves, overlaps, closures, and back detail. The ideas are interesting; the techniques are great. While not a guide for beginners, this title from the author of The ABC's of Serging (Chilton, 1992) is recommended for any library with a sewing collection.-Barbara Bartos, St. Croix Central Elem.
