The Sew-Easy Guide to Menswear
or How to Keep Him in Stitches
As a mediocre sewer on my best days, I have always been under the impression that menswear is tough to manage. A pair of trousers would probably have me crying. There is a lot of detail to a pair of men’s pants. Call me skeptical for a title that says “sew easy” as part of the title. From the illustrations and just the number of pieces in the patterns, I am sticking to my original thought that menswear is out of my league.
As far as sewing books go, it isn’t too bad. If you are a reasonably skilled sewer and into sewing menswear, this would make a decent reference. As a collection development purchase, I would probably lean to something that had more pictures or even videos. This book is still in circulation as I write this, and the condition isn’t too bad. Depending on a library’s budget or public interest in the subject matter, I wouldn’t automatically weed this. It’s not pretty, but it gets the job done.
