I docked the book a star or two, though, since many of the patterns (skirts, tops) would work only for very thin women. I also thought the book carried a few too many projects that you could really make out of any sort of fabric -- it seemed to miss some of the "special" aspects of vintage pillowcases that could have lent themselves to really unique patterns.
The book is probably best suited to beginning sewers.
