Customer reviews

By Holly Landgren 29 Jan 2011 1

What a disappointment! Far from being a master class and the chance to really extend your skills, this book has only one garment pattern per designer. Some are really simplistic, unwearable, and most are uninspiring.

I would not recommend this book to anyone. I will not be making any of the "projects" and will write the cost of this one off to experience.

I would give the book a "zero" on the rating score if I could.
