DIY Fashionista allows you to re-create the most coveted looks and catwalk trends yourself by doing projects that are professional-looking, inexpensive to make and reuse items you already have or can easily source from markets and secondhand stores.
With 50 projects ranging from accessories such as jewellery, hats, bags and scarves to bigger projects for dresses, skirts, jackets, trousers and tops, the book covers a range of treatments, such as customizing, beginner sewing techniques and easy yarn work and jewellery-making. Each project encourages the use of sustainably sourced materials, with listings of ideas of where to get them. Along with How to DIY introduction, there's advice on thrift shopping and collecting materials, as well as "How to Wear" style advice and Wardrobe Rehab.
A beautifully illustrated publication with a fashion-forward feel, the book makes tailoring, sewing and customizing your clothes fun and easy.
