My Review:

One of my best friends recommended this book to me, and I’m glad that she did! It is really cool. The directions are simple and easy to follow, and most of the clothes are modest (in one of the pictures, the girl is wearing a tight shirt with a jacket over it, and I don’t consider that very modest; other than that, it’s fine). 🙂 I’m currently making the Riverwalk Skirt:

ISN’T IT BEAUTIFUL?!? 😀 Hopefully mine will look that good. 😉

The pictures are simply gorgeous… ❤ ❤ ❤ which brings me to the one bad thing about this book- it is likely to make you jealous. Just sayin’. 😀

I would most certainly recommend this book, but I would also recommend having a person who knows how to sew help you; some of the projects are kinda tricky. If you don’t have someone helping you, I would recommend doing the pillowcase. It’s cute, and you don’t need a lot of skills to make it (I personally haven’t made it, but it looks super easy).
