The DIY Couture collection is 10 stylish, easy to make pieces of clothing that can be endlessly reinvented in different fabrics, textures, and colors. Anyone who enjoys sewing and creating something unique will love using this book to make their own couture wardrobe. The book begins by showing with a Useful Techniques section, followed by Collections: inspirational photographs of the pieces styled different ways. Next, each of the 10 garments, from skirts and dresses to a cool romper suit and hoody, are clearly explained, including a spread showing all the variations (e.g. fastenings, necklines, and hems) possible for each garment. Finally, clear step by step illustrations and photographs show you how each piece is made. With no complex sewing patterns, even beginners at sewing can make their own beautiful clothes. With simple, visual instructions and cool styling, DIY Couture will inspire people to join the handmade revolution. Where eco-fashion meets street style, this is the antithesis of fast-fashion.
