101 Sewing Seams is a must have book for everybody who is interested in sewing. Seams are divided into three group; “construction seams”, “hems and finishes” and “details and decorations” which makes them easier to choose, especially for the beginners. The best detail is advising suitable seam types based on the garment types. I highly recommend this book for  fashion students especially, and all of the people who are in the design and production part of the fashion industry.”

I started with the eBook, which I utilize as a reference, but also to take screenshots of the seams to include in my tech packs. However, I also purchased the print version, and enjoy using it as a resource during clients meetings to help them to identify stitches and make decisions
