The book is printed on excellent quality paper with an equally excellent quality of typeface, photograhs and color diagrams making it a pleasure to read and work with.
If any fault can be found it is that the authors make little mention of how important it is to work with a helper or a really well duplicated dress form. Aside from that, their approach is the most sensible and realistic I have seen. This book belongs in the library of every home sewer who wants to create garments with gorgeous fit.
