What's the best sewing reference book?

I would like to buy a good book on how to sew. I don't mean a beginner's instructional book, since I can already sew quite well, but a comprehensive reference book that covers everything from the basics to advanced tailoring and couture techniques. I want a sewing book that is the equivalent of Vogue Knitting
, which is revered among knitters as the knitter's Bible. I've come across Vogue Sewing
, and Power Sewing
by Sandra Betzina. Would you recommend either one of these as the best choice, or do you know of another book you think is better?
