This book is designed for women interested in the do-it-yourself movement who enjoy innovative clothing and accessories made from recycled and industrial materials. While the book's design is referential to a 1950's craft sewing book, the hardcover format is small and the visual design is chosen more for style than ease of use. Young people with good eyesight will not find this a problem as long as they are sitting down and have both hands free. The book is best understood not as a how-to book but as a very small coffee-table book referential to how-to books. The organization is magazine style, to encourage browsing. There are many sections of fashion tips. There is a section on high fashion and tailoring basics, but those interested in either will need additional resources. The book shines in its photographs of innovative wearable art pieces made from recycled and industrial materials. As long as readers do not think they will be able to use this book and a home sewing machine to make a stunning bustier from recycled leather athletic footwear, these images truly inspire.
