Never shop retail again with this chic and sweet collection of DIY patterns from a former host of DIY Network's Stylelicious, Tina Sparkles. Joining the green movement was never so easy -- and cost saving! With Sparkles' stripped-down approach to patterning and sewing, the delightful dresses, tops, skirts, and pants in this fashion-forward project book will not only raise your eco-IQ, but open your eyes to new methods for sewing garments.

Little Green Dresses author Tina Sparkles, a talented and imaginative designer, offers up an array of project ideas that are both earth- and user-friendly. Readers can pick and choose the patterns that suit them best, from A-line, tiered, and bubble skirts to 'body tube' dresses and 'cap-sleeve cutie' blouses. Included are sewing and shopping resources and a fitting guide.

Well. This will spark ideas in beginner sewists that are young. It's a rough and ready approach so if you're looking for fine tailoring...give this a pass.

My real beef with this book was that the patterns were very retro, skirts super-short, and definitely not a style for everyone; I was hoping for something that offered more generalized patterns and tips for reusing clothing and fabric, and this book doesn't go into that at all.
