Sew Subversive by Melissa Rannels

Book Description

"Sew Subversive" is about making fashion your own, whether it's embellishing or customising off-the-rack clothing or transforming clothes that have lost that loving feeling. Learn in plain, fun language, how to sew, whether you're hand sewing, machine sewing, or, in a few cases, simply wielding a pair of scissors! The first three chapters lay the ground work: Hand Sewing Basics, You and Your Machine, and Gearing Up - then the fun begins with Embellishing and Customising projects, including turning a computer-scanned image into an iron-on that you can apply to a t-shirt or skirt, taking in a skirt, or untapering a pair of trousers. Then move onto 'Refashioning: The Next Life of Your Old Clothes' and turn a t-shirt into a skirt, a sweater into a halter top or legwarmers, or a pair of trousers into a hip belt. There are 22 projects in all, some of which only require an iron and/or pair of scissors, while others can be sewn by hand, for those readers who haven't yet made the sewing machine plunge.
