Good.

Very disappointed....not enough information for a beginner.

If you have ever done any basic sewing at all, this book will most likely disappoint you. While it does contain some very helpful resources for materials, and a few pointers on VERY basic construction, the majority of the book is a series of photos of the same few steps over and over again, with a few finished garments thrown in for kicks. The book has several very basic patterns which (unless by some stroke of luck you're proportioned exactly like the model) would only be useful to someone who's made or altered patterns before, but the book contains NO information on fitting techniques or altering patterns for use in latex. My opinion is that it's worth about half of the list price, and mostly for the list of materials suppliers.

This book has information and some patterns for latex, I have not made any of them yet so i cannot say if the construction details, patterns or products described are good. But it appears to me to be really well done and simply presented for someone who is not familiar working with latex.

I have this book as a resource in my costume design library. The latex material works well in applications that need strong compression and a different look.

My husband is a designer with a special interest in Latex. This book gave him a lot of technique knowledge that has been very useful and has spawned a lot of new ideas in his work.

It could definatly use more info on making patterns - especially the tight and slinky ones like a basic catsuit. However you will learn the basics of working with latex and construction details.

as for fitting - well make a snug sloper from muslin. pants should be snug and comfy when standing and too tight for sitting. shirt should be tight as practical, just keep in mind the sleeves will have to be taken in.

when you have your sloper subtract about 5% from the horizontal measurements
and maybe 2% from the vertical ones. that will get you a decent snug fit.

take notes and be prepared to make fine adjustments.
don;t make latex garments too tight. they will fail at stress points. avoid long vertical zippers if possible. there is a huge stress point at the end of a zipper.

when preparing a zipper apply glue to it 2 or three times, letting it dry.

that covers most of the holes in the book :)

have fun
