Embellished FashionsBook - 2008
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, appliqu#65533;s, 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!
