I've seen this book blogged about everywhere from Sew Mama Sew to Sew Inspired, but I'll add my perspective anyway.
The photography is cheery and crisp, the various patterns are neatly tucked into the front and back covers, and the instructions are clear and direct. As a bonus, the author has included great little stories about her history as a sewist, designer, and pattern-maker.
There's even a Flickr group where enthusiasts share pictures of their completed Weekend Sewing projects.
I rarely buy books these days, preferring to use the library, but this book is well worth the cover price (which totals the cost of two sale patterns). The only thing holding me back is deciding what to make first!
