Would you recommend any of these books?

I just got an e-mail from Amazon suggesting a bunch of sewing books, and I thought I'd ask for recommendations. I've been wanting to look at tailoring and so the titles are absolutely intriguing, but I don't want to spend money on useless books or ones that don't give accurate information.

Also, I don't have a dress form and I am a size 14/16. Any recommendations for that? Either tutorials for making your own or brands that people have had good results with!
