I enjoyed this book. I have yet to make any of the projects contained within, but there are several I would like to try. There are many unique styles of shrugs, skirts, blouses, and pants. The sewing instructions are written for a person who already has some knowledge of sewing. This would probably not be a good choice for your first few sewing projects (says the girl who set out to make a ball gown as her fourth project). The instructions of how to make things in this book reminds me a bit of origami instructions. Go ahead and take a look at the book, it is worth your time.
