An exciting, easy-to-follow guide on to how to simply and inexpensively make your own custom couture skirts by embellishing them with a wide variety of materials and techniques. Core techniques such as pattern cutting, sewing seams, hemming, waistbands and zips, finishing, screenprinting and adding embellishments are illustrated with step-by-step photographs. There are also instructions for manipulating fabric to create fabulous effects such as ruffles and rosettes, producing unusual decorations using buttons and beads, and creating unique prints and patterns with pens, pencils and foil. The book contains 49 designs and one mini. The projects range from the simple to the more advanced but all of them are easily within the range of the novice seamstress.

A book for those who want to take their sewing past simple patterns to unique one off creations. The book more often than not uses a skirt you have or a very simple design but it is in the embellishments that this book comes into it's own. Lots of gorgeous ideas to try out (on any garment). The photos are truly inspiring. Love it!

Fabulous book but just a note to those of you who loved Sensational Skirts... this is exactly the same book with a different cover. Not even an extra half a skirt! Don't get caught out :-)
