Minxy Vintage : How to Customise and Wear Vintage Clothing
Do you browse through vintage clothes at flea markets and wish you had the knack to breathe new life into the dated smocks, flares and kaftans? Kelly Doust's Minxy Vintage is the book that will help you transform those items and, in fact, anything that has been sitting in the back of the wardrobe, waiting for a reinvention. In Minxy Vintage, Kelly combines her love for fashion with creativity and her enthusiasm for craft, and transforms stained, musty, dated clothes into modern and unique pieces. Feel inspired with over 50 projects ranging from customised frocks, wedding dresses, trenchcoats, cardigans and accessories. This is not just a book about loving vintage fashion - it's about seeing the possibilities for reinventing all old clothes, and how to look fabulous doing so, no matter what your age, location or budget.
