Editorial Reviews

Upcycling and recycling will never go out of fashion and are a perfect way for crafty folk to combat the relentless consumerist desire to spend. Stylish Remakes takes a random selection of casual clothes and shows you how to reconfigure them into different modes, such as a dress made up of two flannel shirts, or a tunic stitched from a top and skirt. The style is minimalist Japanese where even simple embellishments like a silk scarf collar on your favourite beige coat adds a pop of colour. The photos in the front are followed by patterns in the back." - The Sydney Morning Herald "The explanations are easy to understand and each garment pictured has detailed instructions on its transformation from unworn garment to fashionable item. Simple, easy to understand directions make this great for the novice, as well as the more experienced recycler and introduces you to a wonderful new world of cost effective dressing and creativity." - Blue Woof Reviews "It''s really a book of instruction and inspiration. But what it is about most of all is upcycling." - Wares by Cherry blog "I don''t know that I''ve ever seen a sewing book by a brand before, but I do like the idea, especially since the focus is on ways to repurpose and restyle items you may already have in your closet. [ ] I think this would be a fantastic gift for a teen or pre-teen with an interest in clothing construction, design or repurposing. Most of the projects are very appropriate for beginners, and some are exceptionally simple. It''s the kind of book where a project can be adapted or altered easily, which encourages creativity. Always a good thing!" - Crafty Staci blog "The book is chockfull of ideas for upcycling old t-shirts, athletic wear (think college sweatshirts) and flannel shirts. There are even instructions for repurposing adult-sized clothing into kids'' garb." - Sanae Ishida blog "None of the ideas in the book are particularly complicated. Only a few designs approach the more radical transformations of Charity Shop Chic or Refashionista. BUT if you haven''t tried to refashion or upcycle a garment before, this book will give you some good ideas to get started-and then you can add your own design changes." - CSews blog "If you''re looking for a way to update your clothing, Stylish Remakes from Tuttle Publishing will become your new Bible. With the help of the Japanese clothing design company Violette Room, you can now take old and outdated pieces from your wardrobe and transform them into gorgeous and unique new garments. This inexpensive way to upcycle old flannels, t''s, and sweats will save you so much money each season!" -Madison Bowes, Editor, "
