Snappy dressers of all skill levels can use the techniques in this book to  incorporate ribbons, trim, beads, and other  materials to create true wardrobe originals that are not mass-produced in any way. The chapters  provide ideas for giving new life to old clothes or repurposing inexpensive, common items with just a few simple materials, tools, and techniques. Starting with a lesson in basic sewing and embroidery stitches, readers will learn how to take garments including jeans, a basic  camisole,   and a flared skirt and add their personal touch, whether it's by adding a line of rick-rack trim or ruffles  or even reworking the entire garment. A templates section in the back of the book provides the motifs and designs used in the 30 projects, supplying even more inspiration for stylish crafters whose tastes run from vintage couture to more edgy or bohemian styles.
