most projects are lacking clear concise diagrams, and photo's of completed projects.
the instructions are not for beginners. if you have very little experience sewing, this is not for you. if you have no experience in pattern design or alteration you will be at a loss.
the instructions for the patterns assume you are an experience sewer, and as such will catch the necessary steps not mentioned. like cutting lining pressing for seams, how to turn seams, make corners, etc..
Many projects are lacking patterns completely, or the patterns are incomplete.
Also, as a quilter, the patchwork blanket piecing seems a bit overly complicated in that the quilt isn't pieced in the traditional manner, and uses way more fabric than necessary. I don't think the blanket would wear evenly over time.
In all, very well constructed patterns but they scream for concision.
All that being said, I do still enjoy the photography, the compilation of the ideas (as almost things to create for all aspects of your life), the diagrams and figures, and the inspiration. I definitely recommend this book, but just make sure to not fall into the trap of only buying her fabrics! They look fantastic, and I do love them, but all of your projects will cost you hundreds of dollars.
Amy continues to strive for projects that are modern and fresh. With creativity and style... anyone can produce these hip projects.
