My main gripe is that ultimately the cost of upcycling an old or ill fitting garment with nice trim, lace or a bit of elastic here and there, is higher than just buying something from a charity shop off the peg in in your size. Hell the price of basic haberdashery makes buying new from primark or New Look still a cheaper option. I'm not really a fan of the designs in the books but then I am in my 30's. Although I never quite get why these books always have such 'out there' designs, not everyone who's into sewing and upcycling wants to look like they've just stepped out the Oxfam tent at Glastonbury. Something simple but practical I can wear for work would be nice.
It's a good book but the actual designs look a bit jumble sale to me (even after being made-over)
