I get asked several times a week for book recommendations so I have put together what I think are great books to own. I have all of these books in my library so I can personally say they are all really great.
They are listed according to function and I also noted Beginner-Advanced. These are all clickable so you can go directly to amazon from the links below.
Beginners: Books on General Sewing Techniques
Sewing: Couture and Advanced Sewing Techniques
Fitting: Beginners and Advanced
Pattern Making/Draping: Advanced (Intermediate)
