yet another sewing book with "subversive" in the title! just what we all needed! usually i'm a fan of punny alliteration, but this trend is overdone.

about the contents, though: this is a pretty solid basic intro for the people who never learned to sew, and might be intimidated by the craft. i felt like the basic principles were covered fairly, and there was some attention paid to the subjects of appliqués & embellishments. if you are looking for more detailed or specific info about special fabrics, patterns, or clothing you could wear to work, you should skip this. the project ideas are really simple. many of these crafts can be whipped up in well under an hour, for those of us addicted to instant gratification.
