Format: Paperback
This book is so cute. The colors on the cover pop, and it's well-designed throughout. The best thing I can say for it is that it'll be bookshelf candy - it's adorable.

But the content is so flimsy, you'll probably never make any of the projects. Very few of the projects involve significant alterations; you simply start with clothes you have, that apparently already fit and look great, and you add some small details based on a runway style. Take the dress on the cover: the supplies needed include "white dress, large plastic garbage bag, masking tape, fabric paint in four colors, foam paintbrush." Sure, the stripes turn out cute, but isn't it just as easy to find a white dress with stripes as one without stripes that fits you perfectly off the rack? Isn't DIY style supposed to be about making things, or altering items you'd never be able to wear otherwise? There is a project that turns a sheer scarf and a piece of fabric into a shirt, but very few of the projects require much sewing. And while some of the items are a little over-the-top or gaudy for my taste, others are downright appalling, like the Nautical Bag (p. 92) that turns an ugly placemat into an uglier purse that no one I know would be caught dead carrying.

Most of the projects involve minor decorative changes, and no structural changes. Add ankle straps to black pumps. Glue ribbon to a jacket. Paint stripes on a hat. Bleach the bottom half of a dress. Good for inspiration if you're clueless with a needle, but you'll spend so much on the supplies that you might be discouraged from attempting "DIY" ever again. Even if you do find a handful of projects that you like, you won't be referring back to this book again, because the instructions are so simple.

GOT THIS AS A GIFT FOR MY SISTER AND SHE LOVES IT! IT HAS AWESOME IDEAS THAT ARE SIMPLE AND AFFORDABLE. THIS WILL KEEP HER BUSY FOR SOME TIME.. I AM EVEN LOOKING FORWARD TO MAKING SOME PROJECTS FOR MYELF. IT CAME WAY AHEAD OF SCHEDULE WHICH IS ALSO A PLUS. EXTREMELY RECOMMEND THIS TO OTHERS.

I really enjoyed reading this book. Though I haven't tried any of the crafts in it yet, I can easily see myself wearing or accessorizing with almost everything inside. I found that this book is also similar in ideas with the book, P.S. I Made This, by Erica Domesek.

These ideas are really easy to make and perfect for a craft party with girlfriends. I've already made the feather earrings (very quick and colorful) and I'm going to tackle the feather headband next. This book has a lot of fun ideas that anyone can make -- not so much for the serious jewelry maker or sewer.

I'm a total novice DIY'r, and this book has converted me! Adore the styles (refreshingly chic options) and am hooked on the easy projects. I look forward to the follow-up!

I was slightly concerned by the (few) negative reviews of this book. The whole point of crafting or DIY is to place your own spin on things - so if you don't like something, think about how you can use the techniques to come up with your own spin on things. Try using different colors, applying a technique to a different project, use a different medium to play around with effects, scaling the technique up or down to make it work with the pieces you have, etc. Get creative! Jenni's message is that you don't need to go out and purchase a $2000 Balenciaga bag - get creative, use what you have or what you can buy inexpensively and try doing it yourself! Experimentation is all part of the process and with a little thought (and a bit of gumption) you can create interesting, unique, creative, and personalized things.

The projects and pictures are fantastic! I couldn't have said it better than the other reviewers - the instructions are clear and easy to follow, so even newbies can successfully complete these on their own. No advanced skills required! Jenni has such a talent for fashion AND DIY and it shows. Definitely buy this book!
