This was quite a disappointing purchase. The pictures are great for inspiration and show how creative people can be with upcycling old clothes into new. However, in term of replicating the styles, the instructions can be hard to follow and can be complicated. This is not for a novice seamstress. Even for experienced sewers, you must good at making your own patterns in order to replicate the styles shown. There are many other books in the upcycling genres that are much easier to follow.

You definitely need a background or some experience in sewing, as this book won't teach you how to sew, it may give you some creative ideas for clothes you're thinking about altering, but you'll need to know how to actually make those alterations yourself. That said, there are some really great ideas in this book that if I had the expertise I would really like to try one day. I don't regret buying it, it's a fun, creative book.
