The Sewing Bible Book Review by Liesl Gibson of Disdressed

Friday, November 20, 2009

Here is an excellent book review written by Liesl Gibson for The Sewing Bible by Ruth Singer. If Liesl's name sounds familiar, it should. She's the author of the popular blog Disdressed as well as the creator of Oliver + S, a beautiful line of patterns for children's clothing. So when she recommends a sewing book, people tend to sit up and take notice.

She does a good job of explaining what makes this book different from every other how-to-sew book out there. Liesl also shows several photos from the book. That's one of my biggest "make it or break it" things about a book review. If a book review shows just the cover image and a small paragraph/blurb, I'm not interested. I can get better than that at Amazon. I want a reviewer to put some thought into it. And Liesl does this.

I'm recommending this book to my sister and her husband who are both beginning sewists and can always use a good reference book. And I'm doing it based on Liesl's review.
