I have recently started working at Barnes and Noble part-time which could be potentially detrimental to my wallet. Fortunately I have stayed strong and avoiced spending and exuberant amount of money on books. In fact, I haven't even purchased anything for myself yet.... until yesturday. I saw this book and I had to get it:
It was the last one we had and I was a little freaked that if i didn't get it right then and there I would never find it again! It's such an incredible book. It has iconic women wearing some of their most iconic dresses (twiggy, marilyn monroe, jackie O, madonna, and the list goes on and on). The book contains directions on how to re-create these "famous frocks" with suggestions on variations and fabric suggestions to make the look your own. The best part is the book also contains the patterns for each of the dresses! I literally screamed for joy!
The only thing that makes me sad about getting this book? Since I am so busy at the moment I wont have a chance to try anything in it for a little bit. :(. I'll have to contain myself until I have the proper amount of time to work on these little beauties.
