Fashion magazines show them, top boutiques sell them, and everyone wants them: blouses with beaded necklines; jeans and jackets encrusted with jewels; and pretty dresses adorned with embroidery, studs, and ribbons. The price tags for these gorgeous garments may not be user friendly—but the techniques are. Thanks to this lavishly illustrated manual, anyone can use iron-on motifs, appliqués, decorative stitchery, cutwork, paint, and other embellishments to dress up plain garments for a night on the town. It takes only basic skills to whip up a Sweet Flowers & Pearls Sweater, Feathered Fringed Purse, Lacy Sophisticated Suit, and Bejeweled Belts. Beautiful photos of over 45 restyled creations provide inspiration. So why hesitate? There’s a t-shirt out there just waiting for its makeover!
