Sewing For Dummies® Takes the Guesswork out of Needle and Thread

Has your favorite pair of jeans become too tight, too loose, or begun to look ready for the scrap pile, but you can’t bear to part with them? Or maybe you’re tired of the same old curtains and throw pillows, but can’t afford to go on a decorating spree? The new third edition of Sewing For Dummies® (Wiley; August 2010, ISBN: 978-0-470-62320-6) has the perfect solution. This step-by-step guide takes you from assembling your own sewing kit chock-full of every gadget you’ll need to creating your own outfit from scratch.

No matter what your cause for learning to sew, Sewing For Dummies enables you to create your own stylish, unique wardrobe and even decorate your house for next to nothing. While you learn to patch up your family and decorate yourself and everything around you, Sewing For Dummies encourages you to become a confident, self-expressive sewing machine. Lessons include how to:

  • Measure yourself to perfection
  • Estimate your favorite garments in yards
  • Cover up your skill: pillow covers for beginners
  • Get straight to the right point—needle point, that is
  • Mix and match into a larger wardrobe
  • Stop rookie mistakes and sew like a pro 

Whether you need a quick fix to patch a hole or create a new dress, Sewing For Dummies is the guide for you!
