Recycled Chic

Amanda McKittrick

A simple collection of projects for remodelling and reinventing pre-loved garments and accessories.

Recycled Chic is for those who aren't content to look like everyone else. It both inspires and instructs on ways of recycling, renewing, and reinventing pre-loved fashion and fabrics. Featuring 30 simple and accessible projects, for even a novice seamstress, Recycled Chic will arm you with the techniques, inspiration and confidence to renew your existing clothes and accessories, or alter pre-loved fashion and fabric to suit your individual taste. Each project requires only minimal time, effort and expense to achieve stylish and satisfying results. It could be as easy as removing the sleeves from a frumpy dress, shortening a skirt, or adding an embellishment to a tired old top. And when your confidence grows why not test your skills creating a leather clutch from an old jacket, or a sweet summer top from a man's work shirt? Take a creative plunge and explore the possibilities to refashion your wardrobe with these unique, yet simple, projects.
