Recycle, reuse and revamp your clothes for a more mindful approach to fashion by Janine Chisholm Sullivan

Book Description

Whether you trawl markets for pre-loved clothing that's in need of repair, or want to do your bit for the planet by sustainably updating your existing wardrobe, you'll find plenty of inspiration here. Take 'make do and mend' one step further by not just mending but repurposing your old clothes to create fashionable, unique items.

Janine Chisholm Sullivan, 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 with an embellished collar made using a linen table doily. With step-by-step artworks and a comprehensive sewing techniques section, three full-size patterns and advice on sourcing vintage clothes, Fashion Hacks has everything you need to know to create a wardrobe that's all your own.
