Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

A stylish book about making gorgeous clothes for not much money, recycling thrifted material and creating something brand new from foraged fabric. It's about re-appraising the clothes in your cupboard and transforming them into new outfits and accessories, using simple techniques and the minimum of equipment. In the season-by-season guide, Farry shows us how to recreate Audrey Hepburn sailor chic, look utterly original for a summer wedding, accessorise knits, and make a patchwork poncho for wintry evenings. There's also a section on repairing clothes, on darning and patching creatively, so your favourite items need never end up in the dustbin.

Library Journal Review

This charming mishmash takes your standard repurposing projects and ups the tweet factor significantly. Farry leads crafters through some simple-yet-stylish projects organized seasonally, with a focus on sewn garments and accessories. Her musings are almost as enjoyable as the projects; pure fun.
