More than 20 projects and an array of gallery creations are imaginative and practical fashions-hardworking denim at play.
Pair cast-off denim with a crafter's unyielding creativity and you have a craft with limitless possibility. Denim is the perfect fabric for many arts and craft methods: it is durable, washable, and dyeable; it can be cut, sliced, shredded, poked, prodded, and cinched. Jean Therapy teaches basic techniques - building anything from skirts, bags, vests, and accessories - and illuminates these basic techniques with dozens of clever, funky, and stylish variations.
Jean Therapy includes straightforward, illustrated instructions for more than 20 projects, running the gamut from simple accessories to reconstructed pants, skirts, and halter tops, each featuring design and personalization tips and techniques. Each project will have a main beauty shot, detail shots (as needed), and a number of technical step illustrations that show creation and assembly details.
It also includes a detailed chapter on customizing and tailoring clothing for a perfect fit - a key ingredient when working with repurposed clothing.

I was SO excited about this book and ended up being completely let down. The projects are sloppy and look very, very homemade ~ not in a good way. Read full review
