First of all, I do think this book caters to a very unigue age demographic. and not to women of all ages that wear skirts
This was the first thing that bothered me, b/c I DO wear skirts ( a LOT!) and bought it looking for refreshing ideas to add to my wardbrobe.
Being a die hard knitter also. I look for ideas that I can wear w/ my handknits, and I never make something that is what I call an " orphan" , I always sew something that can be worn w/ at least 3 items I already own
There is nothing new or exciting about this book .and the largest problen I DO have w/ this book ..is that I will have to spend extra time and money to enlarge the very simple patterns that are in this book!
How hard would it have been to include the * three* fullsize patterns in the back of the book cover that most of the other books I have recently purchased are doing??
I am talking about THREE skirt patterns here,,,not 10!
I am certain that I will not keep this book,I will send it back, b/c it does not appeal to my personal asthetic ~ there is nothing in this book I would consider making,
I already own 3 patterns that are in this book purchased on sale for a grand total of 99 cents when on sale or self drafted( for that matter y0u can get a Vogue patterns on sale for as little as 3$$ which are far more classy than these patterns and pattern ideas are here!)
Knowing that skirts are very much in style, i honsetly think you can do better than this book,,,if you have not already tried SEW WHAT SKIRTS, maybe you would consider it,,,,in that book you will be taught how to draft your own skirts to ANY Size be it you, or your youngest daughter.. and *still* get some nice ideas if you can get past the fabric choices of that book also( a key note here is it is ALWAYS about fabric choice when one sews or we would not be sewing in the first place!) You will also have perfect fitting skirts, b/c they teach you that it is the measurements that count , you simply cannot go wrong( I keep that one for reference when I want to whip up a few fast skirts that I Know will fit ) Otherwise w, the patterns in this book ( as well as others) you really should make a muslin first to tweak the fit before you cut into your good fabric,,,and I would add it would be a good idea to do that to any pattern you work on be it skirts, or dresses) That is just sewing 101.
I have to add that one idea ( to add to one of the 3 skirt patterns ) was SO ridiculous I do not knoow how one could even SIT down comfortably with the huge ruffles on the back of ths skirt~ which start right below a part of your body that you many not want to call attention to in the first place ( your behind to be precise) I might add this was done on the pencil skirt to boot!
I am not a large size , actually I am a size 2-4 so its not that these are unwearable for my particular figure,,,(,they are,),its just that they are not ATTRACTIVE OR CLASSY skirts and it is NOT worth the price of this book to have to go to Kinko's to enlarge 3 VERY BASIC patterns that could be purchased for under a dollar apiece!
Want to get a book to teach you how to fit yourself w/ basic skirts ??
As I mentioned before,,,get SEW WHAT SKIRTS
You will be able to get a perfect fitting skirt ( A line, straight, etc) ,SAME that is offered in this book* w/more ideas* but be sure to look up any corrections to directions which is something I always do and yes that book had one error that has been correctied ( 87 review to date mostly ALL positive~
I am extremely disappointed b/c I was expecting so much more than this from these authors.
I thought that enlarge and print it was going to be just a moment, but I had to scan the patterns (making sure they are straight), cut all extra spaces (since I don't want to waste paper in titles or empty spaces), enlarge them and print them in separated pages (something not as straightforward as I thought), and use tape to glue 6 different pages together, carefully ensuring dot lines were straight and the distance between dots was preserved in every union. You'd think it's not that hard, but in the great scheme of things, I don't understand why the authors decided not to include the patterns in real size, opting instead for getting me very frustrated before I can even think of getting the fabric out of the drawers.
