Becoming an at-home tailoring whiz
April 23, 2012 4:49 PM Subscribe
Hi Sewers! I'm just learning how to sew thanks to a new sewing machine and a community college class this summer, but I'd like to develop a specific expertise in alterations and tailoring due to my love of thrifting. There are lots of sewing books out there- is there one that has an especially good chapter on tailoring and altering?

The recommended text for my class is The New Complete Guide to Sewing: Step-by-Step Techniques for Making Clothes and Home Accessories
but there's no way to look inside it on Amazon.
I appreciate your recommendations!
