Great basic sewing book for clothes!

Size range is pretty limited. Nice designs for beginners as long as you aren't too worried about a good custom fit.

Great for beginners, and covers most of the basic information about sewing that you need. But many of these items are going to be sloppy without a minimal knowledge of fitting.
