Cut-up Couture: Edgy Upcycled Garments to Sew

Standard

I just received my new book from Amazon called Cut-up Couture: Edgy Upcycled Garments to Sew, by Koko Yamase. It’s a gorgeously styled book that talks about how to refashion sweatshirts, t-shirts and dress shirts into chic clothes. I love the interesting ideas in here, but I think that the clothes wouldn’t look quite so chic with your standard thrift store sweatshirt, so I think I will make some of the garments in here, but using new sweatshirts.
