Review quote

It's not very often we find books which explain how to make garments for the men in our lives but this book gives comprehensive instruction on how to make perfect fitted tailored suits for both man and women. An essential reference book, it guides you through the process of making classically tailored suits. The first chapter contains essential advice on choosing the correct fabric, which often causes dilemmas before the sewing is even started - before explaining the tools and techniques required to produce professional results. Making pattern adjustments is also comprehensively covered and construction instructions and finishing techniques are detailed and extensively backed up with lots of clear diagrams.
