Item Description...
Using alteration, reconstruction, and embellishment techniques, offers thirty ways to transform and alter garments to create a personal style.

Publishers Description
Frugal fashionistas know that reworked vintage clothing is always chic—and here are 30 easy ways create a stylish wardrobe. Every chapter highlights a single embellishment technique for transforming garments from drab to fab, and every technique features three beautiful skill-building projects to take beginners from novice to advanced. Plus, these looks are designed to last: after all, if you're going to put the time and energy into creating something beautiful, you don't want it going out of style in six months! Deconstruct and reconstruct pieces with retro flair, using such techniques as hand embroidery, appliqué, trimming, felting, beading, silhouette alterations, and surface manipulations.  This user-friendly guide covers all the basic how-tos and includes a fabric tutorial and web resources.


“For me, fashion has always been about evoking a mood –– whether it is intellectual, romantic, or both simultaneously––and Carrie Blaydes and Nicole Smith have isolated a myriad of different moods that we can all relate to. The art school skirt, my personal favorite, could work with a Victorian blouse and create a cool, brainy-gal look. Or, paired with a simple tank, the same skirt tells a bohemian story.

In Fashion DIY Carrie and Nicole have addressed an enormous scope of different styles. Offering advice on how to achieve the easy elegance of a swing blouse, as well as the conversational Falling Leaves Scarf. These two ladies have made style and craft blend into a simple and accurate endeavor. They have created the perfect recipe for a Fashion DIY.” —Alice Roi


“What sets Fashion DIY apart from its counterparts is its refreshingly methodical approach to such a creative art, including practical guidelines and focused questions for the reader, offering strategy for beginners to better manage what can sometimes be quite a daunting endeavor. And while it covers all the necessary basics of embellishment, Fashion DIY is surprisingly inventive, employing the use of recent technologies in the creation of fun and legitimately unique additions to traditional alterations.”

 —Wenlan Chia of Twinkle by Wenlan

Disappointed...too basic for me  Feb 22, 2008
I have had a lot free time on my hands recovering from back damage and surgery and thought I would return to my artistic roots in a variety of ways, one of which is sewing and modifying clothing. Yet the books I ordered recently from this site (this is one of many for variety sake), were all disappointing. All are geared to those beginning in the sewing arts or for those with little to no personal creativity. I would definitely place this book in that category. HOWEVER, for those beginning in this mode of making old clothes "new" again, this may be the book for you. But don't do it my way...purchase one, try things and if you like it and need more encouragement if you are without, purchase another book for additional ideas and personal/sewing/modification growth. Good luck to beginners!
Worth it  Jun 16, 2007
This is a lovely book. Deals with stuff to wear. Ten techniques are explained (trimming, beading, colour manipulation among others) and then three projects for each technique are given, each progressively more advanced. I'd wear everything in this book. Cool ideas, stylish and hip without being unwearable even if you're quite conservative. No jeans turned into skirts here.
