I was super, super excited for this book to come out, as I have been following Marisa's clever blog for years. This book has her usual great ideas, and is divided sensibly into different sections, like Mu-Mu's or Quick Fixes. If you are new to Marisa's craftiness and want to learn to upcycle your clothes, you will enjoy her ideas a lot. But I was a bit disappointed, because many of the after pictures did not show a full picture of the new item, instead focusing on arty poses. There also aren't many step by step pictures, which she features heavily on her blog. So if you are new to sewing and need a bit more visual hand holding, this probably isn't the book for you.
Overall though, a very fun book to look at, and Marisa's usual fun personality shines here.
