The directions are very easy to understand and clear, but i'm not sure why anyone would want to make half of whats in here. Don't get me wrong, there are a few good ideas, but most of them are horrible.
I was so excited, when I read, that you published a book. I am your enthusiastic fan such a long time. I said: Does not matter the postal fee, the high exchange rate of the USD I will order your book from Budapest, Hungary.
I was so excited, when my father told me, I got a package.
I was so excited, I did not even open the book immediately, I waited until got my workplace.
I was so excited...I checked your book from page to page.
And then I was so disappointed. Really. I hardly find anything, what I would like to create from your book. I am so sorry. I can't understand. You are posting so creative things on your websites. How come this book?
I am still one of your big fan, I check your post whenever you publish it. I create your stuff. But I am pretty sure, I never ever buy a book published by you. Sorry!
All the best,
That being said, this book is now in my "Yard Sale" box. I should have previewed it in-store before buying it.
Let me explain: I found nothing- NO THING- in this book that I will make for myself.
Let me qualify that very harsh statement. I am a 38 year old woman, living in a small, liberal arts college town. I am not "edgy." Or "quirky." I neither have nor want the kind of personality that could pull off some of these looks. A shirt made accented with folded up coffee filters. Paper coffee filters. (I'll give you a minute to digest that.)Moving on..."Tuxedo pants" made with decorative ribbon glued on. Metallic spray painted canvas sneakers. A necklace made with plastic triangle rulers. (I hate to sound like a mother, but "Absolutely not. You'll poke your eye out.") A hairband accented with cocktail umbrellas? Only if I had the cocktails first-and I am not sure even that would do the trick. The "high bounce" balls necklace has been mentioned in other posts.
The designs in the book seem inspired by fashions modeled on the runway or print ads. Fashions I have always looked at as a "hook" to get the designer and designs noticed, but that no one in "real life" would actually wear.
I guess I was looking to be like Molly Ringwold's character in "Pretty in Pink." Make something incredible out of some bits and pieces that are mundane or horrible in their original state. No. With the exception of a t-shirt fringed cowl and a jeans purse (neither of which I would wear, but I know a college freshman that would), I think everything looks cheap. Like something a bored 6th grader would make on a rainy weekend.Read more ›
Honestly, I find the majority of the book to be insulting to those who DIY. Instead of being called "P.S., I Made This..." a more apt title would be "Tacky Crap I Made in 5 Minutes." The majority of these items where made in the least intuitive way possible (twist ties colored with sharpie and then used to hold earrings together...) and wouldn't last more than one use. Coffee filter ruffles to a tank top or dress... really? In the 10 minutes it takes to make that you could learn how to make a real ruffle out of a scrap of fabric that won't rip apart or get destroyed by water.
While some of the ideas could have been cute, she put them together in some of the dumbest ways possible. I am astonished that crap like this gets published and has glowing reviews on the back of the text from fashion moguls like Vogue. For every 1 good project there were about 10 more awful ones. Overall, I would recommend this book from the library if you want to take a look, but I certainly wouldn't purchase it.

The book had a lot of cheap looking projects in it. Nothing as nice as the things she makes and posts on her website, or anything I would wear. Kind of disappointing.Published on April 7, 2014 by Christine Jones
It's just ok. Not as interesting as I expected. Nothing really memorable and nothing I was interested in making. I don't even remember what I did with it.Published on April 7, 2014 by Kathleen A. Brackett
This was an amazing book for crafters like me. Erica captures that very spirit in all of her amazing writing.Published on March 23, 2014 by Sierra
