Didn't learn anything from browsing this book but I'm already into using garments for fabric. If you are wanting ideas to avoid buying new fabric then worth a browse.

If you have ever bought a shirt you liked for someone and they don't wear it, then you could always ask for it back to practice an idea from this book!

I have a pile of men's shirts in gorgeous cotton which have been ruined by deodorant stains in one tiny area, but unfortunately, after looking carefully at all 30 projects, I still have that pile. There was little here that suited my taste, and the one or two I liked I have no use for. It's a brilliant idea and worth a look because if you found a project you liked, it would be so worth it.
