Adult/High School—The authors take the ordinary sweatshirt and offer several ways to spice it up by making it into a skirt, a dress, or just a very different kind of top. They start with the basics of supplies and equipment, how to measure, and how to work with sweatshirt fabric, both by hand and on the machine. They then discuss body basics and fashion dos and don'ts, including how to camouflage figure flaws. From there they move into the specific projects. There is a wide variety of ideas, and each one contains detailed directions, complete with step-by-step illustrations. These projects are mainly for those with sewing experience, but they will appeal to teens who are looking for ways to personalize their wardrobes and are willing to put in the work.—Sarah Flowers, formerly at Santa Clara County Library, CA
