Format: Paperback
A great book on T-shirt reconstruction with tons of ideas. The instructions are easy to follow and most include suggestions for variations. The pieces vary from super-easy, no-sew to a wedding dress made from shirts. On top of the large number of suggestions this book will inspire you to design your own. Although be warned: quite a few of the pieces are more suited to teens rather than thirty-somethings such as myself. Still it has given a number of oversized t-shirts in my collection a new lease in life.

Having customised my own hot pants, leggings and jeans I looked forward to this book arriving with excitement. However, when I flicked through it soon became apparent to me that many of the transformations that were for one t-shirt would never in a million years accommodate my bust (which has not been surgically enhanced in any way!!).

All of the models in this book are stick thin with absolutely no bust whatsoever so where the book calls for you to cut a certain amount from the bottom to make the halterneck on the front cover for example, there is no way you could cut enough to create the same style if you have an ample bust. I wouldn't personally wear any of the skirt transformations, earrings or bags but quite a few of the tops look quite appealing.

I feel that the book could have been a bit more diverse in terms of model sizes so in that regard I have given it a rating of two as I am not particularly large but for those who are very slim and perhaps under 25 I'm sure they will have great fun with the transformations.

Generation T - 108 ways to transform a T-shirt, By Megan Nicolay

This is a fantastic book!
It has many more than 108 transformations in it as each idea also comes with a page of variations on the initial theme!
Some of the t-shirts reconstructions are not styles i would chose to wear, however the ideas and methods are all very clearly laid out with precise instructions that are easy to follow and so many of these ideas you can use as inspiration and vary the style yourself to something you would wear.

Not only does it show you how to make different clothing items out of your t-shirts but there are many other ideas for things you can use around the house - patchwork quilts, cushions, stuffed toys, head bands, bags etc.

Good for teens to late twenties who want to get creative with their clothes but are never going to be fashion designers! Also a very good use for that drawer full of t-shirts that you can't bear to part with but never ever wear. (i'm turning them into a quilt for cosy nights on the sofa)

Format: Paperback
I'd had this book on my wishlist for months, until I actually saw it in person in my local Waterstone's. It came off my wishlist soon after.

It's written for a very young audience, early-mid teens maybe, with huge print, and lots of needless illustrations. It reads like a teen magazine and not like a 'grown up' craft book. Also, the vast majority of the reconstruction suggestions are horrible and unwearable, ripped in places and safety-pinned together.

If you really want to make your t-shirts into wearable clothes, buy a sewing book and learn the basics first, then experiment with your t-shirts on your own. You'd learn a lot more that way than by buying this book.

However, if you know a 14 year old girl who wants to get into crafting, this may be a good buy.

Yes this book is quite basic and yes some of the designs I would never wear in public, but some I really like and are almost classy and all are a source of inspiration for further personal ideas for using up your old T-shirts. You're bound to find something you like in book with over 100 ideas.

I found this book such a help, it was bought as a present, and it completely transformed my sewing skills. My mother was always good at dressmaking and tried to teach me but I could never get what she was saying about cutting and selvedges, etc. The book was easy to use as they explained why you had to use certain techniques and didn't use dressmaker jargon. It was also a help that the projects used old t-shirts instead of expensive fabric. I didn't have to fear ruining anything and even if i did i could remake the garment into something else from the book. Some projects don't even need sewing, just cutting. I ended up making a very nice witchy pointed skirt from a t-shirt something i would never have thought possible. There's also many tops, dresses and bags included in the designs. My skills have improved so much from using this book i have just made my first garment from a Pattern. I highly recommend this title if you are starting out, if you are already advanced enough to be making pattern garments or customising your own stuff then it's probably not that great a buy.

I have borrowed this book from the library and its so good I think I will buy it! I am 31 and would happily wear most of the outfits suggested, maybe the person who suggested it was for midteens, shops in marks and spencers and doesn't want to look cool and funky?!

Ignore anyone who says this book is rubbish - it was delivered to my house this morning and I am completely in love with it already!! I haven't actually given any of the ideas a try yet, but it will keep me occupied for HOURS!! There are hundreds of cool ideas in here, and I'm going to need a heck of a lot of T-shirts to try them all!! Haha, seriously though, this is ingenious, and there's something for everyone...
Very clear and easy to follow, detailed diagrams.
