Is it easy to learn to sew from a book or DVD? Is it worth the price of the fabric to make things yourself or does it seem easier and cheaper to just buy and outfit at the store? ( girl clothes )Answer Question

PS, a great book you can buy is the Vogue/Butterick "step by step guide to sewing techniques". I LOVE this book, its my sewing bible... easy to read, easy to understand (even for beginners) it has a handy "how to read and use patterns" section which is nice because even those of us with training have a hard time with some patterns and terminology (and sometimes you get patterns written in the UK or italyand they use CM, not inches, this helps you convert). Its an AWESOME book and well worth the investment. I got mine used for about.. $15 with shipping. It was so worth it, I use it almost every time I make a garment.
