Hi - I have been quilting for a few years and can make a basic bag and VERT basic pair of men's flannel pj pants (but only in 1 size  Smiley  I'm interested in learning more about making clothes - any suggestions for a good book that might help easily explain the basics?

thanks!

Hi  Smiley I've acquired quite the sewing book collection over the years, and if there's one I absolutely recommend it would have to be the Reader's Digest Guide to Sewing. I picked up an old copy at a thrift store a few years ago, and my husband recently got me the newest edition. It covers everything, gives step by step instructions with tons of illustrations, and has 20 projects. Good luck!

There are so many great video tutorials on YouTube! No book needed.

You could also google "sewing tutorials" and get a lot of walk-throughs that way! I like: http://sewmamasew.com/tutorials.php

Good luck!
