      There are advantages to both.

      With the Kindle and ebooks you will have everything in one place at the touch of a button. The codes to download the patterns so that you may print them at home on your printer.

      Hardcover, you get to enjoy flipping through the pages and the patterns are included in the book. No printer needed.

      Great advantages to both, so you just need to figure out which one you prefer.

      Happy Sewing!

    Today is the day? six hours ago? I just bought this for myself about 3 hours ago from my local bookstore (noting that they still have one left for someone else)! Wow… I feel so “on top of things now” (which is a rarity with a toddler in tow).

    What I liked most was the different variations on the patterns aren’t all just “pieces added or taken away”… there’s some real drafting discussed. Great work as always, BurdaStyle ladies and gents! Now if that toddler will only let me sew (can’t wait til she’s old enough to be busy with her own projects to let me do mine)!
