This book has awesome step by step instructions, with pictures to go with each step. the author also gives great ideas about where to look for materials, and the ideas are all really cute. I'm in my late 20s, and I love the ideas in the book and can't wait to try them, but anyone interested in this book should note that the ideas have a young vibe, and although the clothes aren't necessarily revealing, there are a few outfits that might not suit someone with more conservative taste.
