I'm adding this to our side bar because it is an amazing collection of good quality fashion books without all the home sewing crap that usually clutters up the craft section of bookstores.
On a side note I recently saw Sewing with Nancy on a hung over saturday morning. That is one of the most creepy and uncomfortable sewing experiences. for those of you that haven't seen it, Nancy is a stroke victim that can't use one half of her mouth and walks the audience through god awful projects that are meant to inspire young people to sew. Things like tube tops made from slinky fabric and ribbing cut from sweaters, all sewn together with a regular strait stitch, 5/8" seam allowances, and all the raw edges hanging out inside. Bllleehh!
Oh and if you want to try something else make it reversible. Double blleehh!
