Very much needed resource book
Five stars! I highly recommend this book, even for beginning sewists. Claire Shaeffer's books are wonderful. She helps you learn how to not waste time in making beautiful clothes.
Pockets can be tricky. This covers every detail for 53 different pockets. This isn't overkill - the pocket can make you love what you made, or hate it.
Read about a particular pocket type before you sew one up - even if you are using an easy-to-make pattern. You'll feel more confident, and you will make your garment look better in less time.
