Whether revamping your own cast-offs, or picking them up for a song at a charity shop, with Jayne’s help, you can create some great new looks for clothes or accessories. Dye an old tablecloth and cut it up to make a hot jive skirt, revamp broken jewellery to make great new necklaces, turn a cheap white chain store vest into a jazzy little camisole, or cut up an old leather skirt and make a fabulous new bag. Felted your favourite sweater by mistake? Then transform it into an evening bolero by cutting it up and overstitching it. In three principal chapters, Changing Colour, Adding Decoration, and Changing Form, Jayne shows you how to dye clothes, embroider and trim them, or cut them up or down into something new. With more than 30 ideas to choose from, beautifully photographed by John Heseltine, you won’t be short of inspiration. A detailed practical section at the back covers basic stitching information plus all the back-up how to do it for Jayne’s creative concepts.
