Make it, Own it, Love it is a great book that is perfect for both novice and more experienced sewers. Matt goes over the tool kit you will need to get started, writes about getting to know your machine, different types of fabric and stitches as well as a chapter on patterns and measurements.
There are really useful chapters on altering clothes, taking up hems etc (which people are always asking me to do!)
Later chapters are great for those with more experience as Matt covers making clothes including bow ties, a blouse, scarf, skirts, a dress, and pyjama bottoms. The book also has a useful chapter on maintaining and repairing clothes.
