Little Green Dresses: 50 Original Patterns for Repurposed Dresses, Tops, Skirts, and More looks like it is going to be amaaaaazing. You know how I know??? ‘Cause Tina Sparkles, the author, is pretty amaaaaaazing. Not only does the book look like a great treat for those who like to repurpose but it also seems to cover eco-friendlier options. I mean, I have to buy it, then read it, then obvi report on it.

Book’s description? “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. 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.”
