We all have clothes in the closet that we no longer wear. Why not customize or transform these garments and give them a second chance?With the various techniques for customizing proposed in this book we will be able to transform our used clothes into unique and exclusive pieces. Throughout the book the processes and techniques used to create each design are discussed alongside inspiring photographs and beautiful illustrations. Master classes on a fantastic range of techniques provide practical advice on how to apply your designs to clothing and accessories using screen-printing, embroidery and batik, fabric painting and stenciling.Enjoy again those pieces that have been neglected by following the Do it yourself (DIY) premise. Dresses that are too short or too tights, grandma’s out-of-style coat, a ruined belt, a torn sweater, will have a second life thanks to this book.
