Denim has always been universally cool, but the renaissance that this adaptable, comfortable, stylish fabric is now experiencing is unprecedented. But before you pay hundreds of dollars to get the latest denim looks, learn how you can actually create your own chic pieces from recycled denim in your closet, vintage stores and thrift shops. In Denim Revolution, former Calvin Klein design assistant Nancy Minsky offers dozens of patterns for novices to experienced stitchers that fuse recycled denim with cool embellishments - mixing together old, new, vintage, antique, rugged and modern to spice up your wardrobe. You don t have to be a master seamstress to get these fresh looks; many of the projects are designed for beginners and don t even require a sewing machine. All have step-by-step instructions, sketches and photographs to guide you. Also included is a sewing tutorial and tips and techniques on everything from cutting fur and fraying edges to embellishing denim with embroidery, other fabrics, ribbon, lace or paint.
