They say you can't buy common sense but this book disputes that saying by sharing wardrobe-planning ideas that can be easily applied to today’s busy schedules. The charm of this book is its vintage simplicity. The sewing instructions are easy to vision and I look forward to trying some of the updating hints. The only drawback is the illustrations don't appear.
