Thrifty Style: Clever Ways to Revamp your Wardrobe by Janine Chisholm
THE book to discover how to transform vintage finds and well-worn clothes into fashion-forward pieces. Whether you trawl markets for pre-loved clothing that's in need of repair, or simply want to update your existing wardrobe, eco designer and stylist Janine Chisholm offers plenty of inspiration here. Take 'make do and mend' one step further by not just mending but creating fashionable, unique items of clothing by repurposing your old ones.
Janine Chisholm, an experienced dressmaker, teaches you how to rework clothes into new styles - from adding embellishments and changing necklines, sleeves and hems to total transformations, such as creating a brand new dress from two old ones. Make a pretty blouse from a floral dress, or convert a man's shirt into a stylish shirt dress. Take a basic woollen skirt and bring it bang up to date with an asymmetric hem - or add interest to a plain top by adding an embellished collar using a linen table doily. With clear, step-by-step artworks, as well as a comprehensive sewing techniques section, four full-size pull-out patterns and advice on sourcing vintage clothes, this book will tell you everything you need to know for a wardrobe that's all your own!!
