This is going to be my go-to recommendation for people that are beginner to advanced beginner to sewing. It's beautiful, thoughtful, and sophisticated, especially for a reference book targeted to that audience.
It's also got a lot of great information--most beginner-appropriate books don't have nearly that much information on fitting, nevermind clear photos and diagrams demonstrating what to do--but in a very accessible way, not at all like textbook or anything like that.
The structure is very c This is going to be my go-to recommendation for people that are beginner to advanced beginner to sewing. The structure is very clever, with the patterns woven throughout the chapters to help people learn as they go.
I'm not particularly into most of those designs, but it's great that all the detailed instructions that you'd get with a standalone Colette Patterns booklet are in there.
The projects are all still loads more interesting than the typical elastic waistband rectangle skirt or pillowcase for beginners. And they're more accommodating of curvy figures, as compared to the Sew U: Also a nice feature that it's spiral-bound so will lay flat when you're referencing something.

I borrowed this from the library to check it out after stumbling upon https: This book is just excellent, the amount of information laid out in such a logical and easy to absorb manner is just terrific. I've sewed for years but in a very beginner manner, I think I'm finally ready to take that to the next level now. Excellent resource, wou I borrowed this from the library to check it out after stumbling upon https: Excellent resource, would recommend to any sewist.
Oct 12, Dixie rated it it was amazing Shelves: I checked out The Colette Sewing Handbook from the library.
However, this book is a keeper that needs to be added to my reference books. I skimmed the book on a few occasions in the past, but I never fully read it until now. To be honest, the patterns were not that interesting to me, so I passed on the book. Having spent some time now with the layout, I can appreciate the thoughtfulness of the patterns combined with the techniques.
The book starts with the basics and then moves on to techniques I checked out The Colette Sewing Handbook from the library. The book starts with the basics and then moves on to techniques and fabric details. Beginning with chapter three, each chapter includes a pattern, which allows you to implement the techniques and information you have just learned.
The book is worth adding to your library for the fit chapter alone. I just wish I liked the patterns a little more so that I could follow the book in the manner it was intended. I do like the Taffy Blouse, so maybe I will sew that when I add this book to my personal library. Mar 06, Bunny rated it it was amazing. This is a wonderful book for the aspiring sewist who wants to really know how to do it all correctly.
The book gives enough information and direction to take you through five lovely beautifully fitting garments. As you make each garment your skills are expanded and if you work your way through this book and patterns you will be an accomplished sewist before you know it. I love how Mitnick gets into the planning of sewing by discussing fabric, wardrobe needs, body image, etc.
The table is set bef This is a wonderful book for the aspiring sewist who wants to really know how to do it all correctly. The table is set before you sit down to eat as well it should be. By the time you are ready to make a garment the book has prodded you into some serious thinking about your investment of sewing time and finances and with this comes the promise of success.
The garments speak for themselves, beautifully fit, realistically styled, not crazy to sew, and flattering for many shapes and sizes. Highly recommend. Jan 10, Erika Mulvenna rated it really liked it Shelves: A great book geared towards anyone interested in starting to sew garments. Well written with lots of great advice and tips along with well written instructions.
This will be the FIRST book I recommend to anyone who has some sewing experience but wants to learn how to confidently sew well-fitted garments from patterns. View 1 comment. Oct 31, Kathleen rated it it was amazing Shelves: Such a fantastic reference and comes with 5 patterns that are coordinated with the chapters to teach the reader skills. Not every garment is one I would want to wear, but that's such a smart way to do things.
I love this book and want to get my own copy as soon as possible. Mar 14, Denise rated it liked it Shelves: Wow, the advice and instructions were really really solid, on par with a community sewing class for sure with good advice on altering patterns, but the patterns were all pretty meh.
Sep 23, Bekah rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book is really fabulous. Even if you have no interest in the patterns included, I would still recommend this to people who sew, especially beginners. It teaches you so much. It really has everything you could need to know about sewing aside from how to work your machine, but hey, it can't have everything. I coul This book is really fabulous.
I could definitely see myself making a few of them, especially heading into the holiday season.
Mar 03, Gail Richmond rated it really liked it. Here are clear directions to make a piece of clothing fit your unique body shape, quirks and all. The patterns for dresses and tops are not necessarily those I would wear, but the pattern-fitting is superb information. Nov 04, Talie rated it liked it Shelves: Some restrictive views to what to wear in color and style based on your shape and coloring. This might make a good background to automating clothing suggestions for a person based on their photo as a starting point.
Detailed enough in this book to be a solid starting point. Some great links to sewing blogs by people using patterns and doing their own thing. Jan 23, Veronica Smyth rated it it was amazing Shelves: Very instructional with sophisticated yet simple looking projects.
Would love to work my way through this book! Sep 11, Jen rated it really liked it. Good information for a newbie sewer about fabrics and techniques, but the patterns don't thrill me. Jul 21, Nicole rated it really liked it. Great handbook that finally made me stop and take a step back to consider each step in following a pattern. Nov 26, V Mignon rated it really liked it Shelves: I've always enjoyed the way Sarai Mitnick writes about sewing and her blog, The Coletterie, is filled with articles that examine fashion, fabric, and our lives in clothes with an analytical eye.
The Colette Sewing Handbook is a sewing book that is certainly aimed towards beginning sewers. The projects are quite simple.
But what Colette has always focused on, and what makes me love their patterns both Colette and Seamwork is the focus on technique rather than difficulty. And I think that it was I've always enjoyed the way Sarai Mitnick writes about sewing and her blog, The Coletterie, is filled with articles that examine fashion, fabric, and our lives in clothes with an analytical eye.
And I think that it was due to reading the Colette blog that I began hunting down Youtube demonstrations for different techniques. This is a great book for beginning with the technique involved in sewing, using simple patterns to practice making your own bias tape or understand the different drapes of fabric and how it can alter your project.
Even as someone who is an intermediate sewer, there were a few things I didn't know that Mitnick covered.
I thought clips and notches were the same thing. Now I know: And while I knew about selvages and bias, I had never been taught weft and warp. So here's to me making my own bias tape! Mar 02, Lise rated it it was amazing Shelves: Having started sewing again after a year break, my skills were a bit rusty. I bought the Collette Sewing Handbook to re-learn basic techniques, but the book offers much more than that. Sarai Mitnick provides a terrific framework for approaching sewing as a craft.
She teaches you how to approach your sewing projects in the context of your overall skill development and wardrobe planning. And beyond that - her fashion designs are timeless and elegant. I'm planning on making most of the garments Having started sewing again after a year break, my skills were a bit rusty.
What sizes are the patterns? I was excited to read about this book at first because it sounds like just the thing I need to help me get started with sewing clothes. I checked, and yes, unfortunately it only does sizes to Danielle and Amy — The sizes in the book go up to These kind of books are great for beginner sewers.
My daughter 13 received a sewing machine from her grandma for Christmas. Would this be a good starting point for her other than the time spent learning from her grandma? Andie — This book would be great once your daughter starts to learn to make her own clothing. If she needs to learn to sew first I would start with a book that covers more basics. But this book would be great once she is interested in making her own clothes because it shows how to fit and personalize clothes — I used to f ind that clothing made from patterns was such a poor fit for my petite frame that it was very discouraging.
Best of wishes! Megan, perfectly helpful response. You and your blog are really quite lovely and I thank you for such a prompt response. Hi, I'm Megan. I live in Seattle with Scott. I make stuff and give you tutorials on how to make it too. I also keep a blog of what I'm up to and links to good stuff from all over.
