Using the freehand cutting method for which she has become so well known, bestselling 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... fashion feel. For a long time, homemade garments have suffered from an unstylish image, but now, in-line 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 minimise your waste and maximise your creativity! Projects include: 2nd Date Night Dress, Angled Overlay Pencil Skirt, Asymmetric Peplum Top, Child's Peekaboo Back Dress, Men's Cotton Shirt to Baby's Dress, Men's Jeans to Child's Dress, Shirt to Button-back Dress, Jeans to Sassy Tutu Skirt, One-shoulder Jumpsuit, Pencil Dress Refit and Extension, Signature Collar Top, Versatile Maxi Dress, Wrap-front Maxi and Wraparound Bustier Dress.
