YA?This outstanding sewing guide provides a detailed reference for both novices and experts. Each page is filled with colorful photographs of models demonstrating different techniques. Chapters explain how to pick and use patterns; select fabrics and notions; sew basic stitches and seams; attach interfacings and interlinings; form darts, tucks, pleats, and gathers; sew necklines, collars, waistlines, sleeves, and cuffs; hem; and add edges, fastenings, and pockets. The Complete Guide to Sewing (Reader's Digest, 1976) makes the directions for marking and cutting pattern pieces more accessible by combining them in one chapter, plus it provides more basic directions for using a serger. However, the blue-and-white illustrations and layout lack the powerful aesthetic appeal of Cream's guide. This title can supplement any pattern company's garment construction, and its visuals will entice many YAs to give sewing a try. A definite purchase.?Linda Diane Townsend, West Potomac High School, Fairfax County, VA
