Lots of sweater patterns with a 80's feel to the pictures and color combinations, but it can all be easy to modernize by choosing more stylish colors.
I really love the 'Linda' off the shoulder sweater pattern on page 44, but I'd make it in baby pink and off white and put the bow off center, but it is really a sweet and sexy sweater in 32, 34, 36, 38 and 40 inch bust sizes for 6, 6, 7, 7, 8 x 50g balls of 22sts and 30 rows on st st for 10cm2 on US5 or 3.75mm needles + 1, 1, 1, 2, 2 contrast yarn.

This was a nice book - I thought the patterns were nice and diverse enough to offer a fresh perspective on classics. There were plenty of photos to show off the knitted items and I thought the layout was well put together. There was one particular pattern that I want to knit. I really liked the Bolero titled "Rebecca" and I would like to knit that for myself eventually. I can see it as being something I'd wear over sundresses. I'd probably recommend this book.

This is Moss taking pity on her fans, a lot of the patterns being for beginners. I'm not nearly as fond of this as her other books. But, if you want classy brainless knitting, go for it!
