- Disappointing Review by NULL NULL
As a long time sewer I was disappointed in this book, I had read a bio about her and the book and decided to buy it when I could. But I found it didn''t live up to expectations and a waste of my limited resources. Repetitive techniques and designs used throughout many of the 49 projects in all too heavy layers would be impractical to comfortably wear these skirts. Some interesting ideas but very few new innovative ways to add design and texture. She obviously likes the rough unfinished look of edges that will soon fray the fabric bits into rags, as most of the designs have this look, some it suits others look like she just couldn''t be bothered finishing them. I gave it three stars because there are some techniques that have given me some ideas or reminded me of things I have done in the past and forgotten. Get it from the library first if you can before you buy.
