I have returned to this book time and time again for inspiration. It's a fun, easy, sewing book for those of us that just want to start sewing with no extra fussiness. A great way to express one's own unique style at any age.

A book of ideas. I would not wear the adult clothing projects. Grungy, carefree is perfect for young people. Some interesting projects, like free-motion sewing. Many projects similar to Alabama Stitch but without the quality workmanship. Disappointed.

I couldn't believe it. This would have been a waste of money if I had purchased it.

Just what I've been looking for -- a book with uncomplicated directions for making your own clothes. I had to return it before I could make anything, so I can't in good conscience give it 5 stars, but I'll be buying a copy and may come back to revisit my review.
