Way better than the others

This book has really impressed me. It has way better content than the Generation T book and the 99 ways book. This book can be helpful for beginner sewing as well. It runs through how to sew as well as some tailoring tips and how to use different notions and cut fabric. It's great! Much more bang for your buck! I checked out there website and got a really nice sewing machine.

I want this book!

I have the Sew Fast Sew Easy book and my sewing has improved ten fold. I now have an understanding of how garments are put together and am experimenting with redesigning my own clothes. I then bought Rip It!. This book explains a bunch of diferent ways of reconstructing clothes and accessories so it's been really helpful to recreating my clothes. It's a great book for any level of sewer of any age. I definitely recommend this book!

Not just reconstructing T shirts

I bought this book after buying the Sew Fast Sew Easy book. This book was a great follow up to SFSE. It shows more ways of altering clothes and different sewing techniques for it. I learned to take my favorite boyfriend shirts and make them my size. He loves seeing me wear his old concert tees and they're fun, quick and easy to make.

Great book to build your sewing techniques

I think that Rip It is great for anyone looking to learn more sewing techniques. Some of the great tips include the proper way to sew ribbon onto something and how to make a simple bustier. I loved this book because it is packed with some fun ideas.

Great weekend fun!

I picked up RIP IT on Friday and by Memorial Day I have done a couple of projects that I thought were really hard. This is a great book. It simply explained stuff. I highly recommend it if you want to learn to sew or if you want to pick up some sewing tips.
