Book Description

Using the freehand cutting method for which she has become so well known, best-selling author and designer Chinelo Bally shows us how to make fabulous new items from garments that most people already have in their wardrobe, as well as projects using interesting new fabrics for that fashionable feel. 

For a long time, homemade garments have suffered from an unstylish image, but now, inline with the trend for conscious-led fashion, Chinelo shows you how to transform everyday items into timeless pieces. Learn to turn a man’s suit into a tailored dress and old pair of jeans into a sassy tutu skirt.

The projects will include the use of additional fabrics and embellishments so that readers can create a fresh wardrobe full of the colours, textures and styles that appeal to them. Throughout the book readers will be encouraged to make clothes to suit their own style and achieve results that are beautifully distinctive. Sew Chinelo reveals the secrets to producing wearable clothes with exquisite style, feminine glamour and a professional finish. So minimize your waste and maximize your creativity!
