Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

The scope of Nicolay's how-to book is broader than its title suggests. It's a breezy, trendy call of encouragement to a young crop of do-it-yourselfers, with enough ideas to inspire experienced crafty types, too. The T-shirt is the starting point; the 108 end results—many of which have an edgy, even punk-like feel (much like the projects in Debbie Stoller's Stitch 'n Bitch)—range from slightly modified tops requiring no sewing to much more intricate fashion products like the sexy "sidewinder" skirt and the two-piece "teeny bikini," with variations suggested for many projects. Offering celebrity tidbits ("In the 1950s and early '60s, James Dean, Marlon Brando, and Elvis Presley delivered a triple dose of T-shirt sex appeal onscreen and onstage, turning the garment into an icon of rebellion") and "tee trivia," a condensed history uncovers one of the world's favorite pieces of clothing. The book starts with an introduction to design terms, tools, measurement, materials and stitches, making it accessible to beginners. And because the author—who got into transforming Ts by gathering friends and hosting "Brooklyn Tee Parties" to resuscitate old T-shirts—is budget-conscious (and so are all the projects in the book), anyone can afford to experiment with this kind of fashion design. (Apr.)

Format: Paperback
This book has a lot of great ideas in it and most of the projects are very easy to follow. There are a ton of interesting accessories and things for around the home that look quite nice. However, I must add that a vast majority of the clothing featured in this book is very trashy, and definately not something anyone older than 17 or bigger than a size 0 could ever attempt to even think about wearing.

Full of great ideas that are very easy and instructions that anyone can follow. Even several no-sew ideas for those without any sewing ability/desire. It was inspiring too - I thought up several of my own designs after browsing this book. Go ahead - make something uniquely yours!

I expected better how to diagrams because I was taking it to a sewing class where people are learning how to sew . It looks like it was drawn by children .
