I liked the idea of this book much more than the actual book, I'm afraid. It's a nice enough little read, and I like the fact that it includes knitting and sewing patterns, some of which I haven't seen in other places. (Though in the case of the knitted dungarees, there may be a good reason for that!)
The format of the book didn't work for me at all. It's much smaller than most sewing books, and the patterns at the end need a lot of blowing up. The instructions seemed too crammed in for my liking. While the layout does enhance the vintage feel of the book I found it so off-putting that I haven't even attempted any of the projects in the book.
