Review by

For many other people this would probably be 4* but not my aesthetic and a lot of the simpler stuff I've done years ago. It's another book that sparks a few ideas.She starts with introducing herself and then moves from basic changes to existing clothing to change them to suit you better and the moves to sewing your own. Could do with some instruction on using and following commercial patterns, which I didn't notice during my read of this.
