New Dress a Day:

New Dress a Day The Ultimate DIY Guide to Creating Fashion Dos from Thrift-Store Don'ts By: Marisa Lynch
Non-Fiction: 200 pages
Book Count: 5

If you have ever found a dress at a thrift store and thought, "this would be a great dress if it wasn't so dated because of X," then this book is for you. It shows how different types of common thrift store dresses, shirts, and skirt types can be updated into clothes that look modern, or at least retro instead of just old.  If you have a basic understanding of sewing you can do any of the projects, but most of the ones even have no-sew options for people less skilled in sewing.  It is based off of the writer's blog where she made a "new" dress a day out of old ones.
