I really like The Dressmaker's Technique Bible by Lorna Knight. It covers more than just dresses (actually its mostly just an encyclopedia of sewing tecniques so there are very few dress specific entries). I wouldn't say I'd ever swear by it; its certainly missing more info than I'd like but the explinations and diagrams are simple and clear with no more than 1-2 pages per technique and it contains basic info on material and paterning etc. So its not perfect but I'd say its the first place I look for help before going into a more extensive search for anything else. It really is quite helpful
