Right on target! Nov 27, 2006
My teenage daughter and her many friends have used this book numerous times to make the many items that Ms. Zent presents in her book. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. The items were low cost and my daughter actually wears them! "The girls" already have plans to get together over the Christmas break to work on more of these great ideas. Right on target for the age group this book was written for - Teenagers!
not what I expected Aug 18, 2006
I got this book thinking my grand daughter would enjoy sewing with some to the many many fabrics around, BUT she found one skirt that was made with 2 t shirts! so we would have to go buy 2 t-shirts! well that sort of turned me off to the rest of the tops that were very skimpy to wear for a girl who is a C cup at 15. So NO we didn't make anything out of it. Not our style.
