This book has some interesting ideas and may spur further creative redesign, but it is for the more serious crafter or sewer. Not that professional skill is required, but there is a certain level of dedication necessary.

The instructions are clear, the illustrations seem adequate. Most of the items are pretty fashion-forward. You have to be adventurous to wear some of these styles, but, with clever tweaking, they could probably be toned down a bit.

It is certainly worth adding to the library if you like to play around with textiles.
