By K. Platt TOP 50 REVIEWER on 27 Feb. 2012
Format: Paperback
This book has rather a plain cover for quite exciting content. Found out how to personalise your wardrobe and make it unique to you. If individuality matters to you, and it should, this is the book for you. This book offers tutorials and practical advice on making your wardrobe YOU. It explores the current trend in upcycling and sustainable fashion. It includes essential information on techniques, with the step by step tutorials and photographs. To inspire, there are interviews with fashion designers and a gallery. It includes generating prints from your own photos using Photoshop; bleaching; dyeing: printing: embellishing; deconstruction and specialist techniques. The resources section is good. A great book especially for beginners, but intermediates might find inspiration here too. This review first appeared on yarnsandfabrics website.

What a fantastic book! Loads of ideas! I already knew a lot of techniques, but somehow seeing them all together jogged my memory and I am all raring to go! Thanks, Rain!
