Guidance in remaking altering clothes

I was totally unimpressed by this book. Meyrich is a desinger and consultant "whose collections have been featured in several major magazines, etc..." Perhaps I'm just not her audience, but I was hoping for more from someone who has designed for the mainstream fashion industry.

Why spend tons of money on humdrum designer duds when it's possible to revamp a piece you already own to create a guaranteed original that looks, fits, and feels just the way it should?

Rip It! shows how simple and fun it can be to transform a tired wardrobe into hip, one-of-a-kind new looks without spending a dime. Elissa Meyrich, owner and teacher at the popular New York sewing boutique Sew Fast Sew Easy, has been passing her sewing secrets and style tips on to students for years. Now she shows beginners and experienced sewers everywhere how to customize pieces found at cheap chain stores, thrift shops, or the far reaches of a closet and create fabulous new designs. Rip It! includes everything you need -- basic sewing and alteration information; quick sewing methods; where to find supplies; advice on which fabrics to use; important cutting rules; plus illustrated layouts, drawings, and instructions that show you how to:

Jazz up old t-shirts with stretch lace and zippers

Turn faded, falling-apart jeans into a hot new denim skirt

Change a pullover into a cute cardigan

Make a thrift-store dress into a hipster skirt

Create an instant poncho

Cool, crafty, and brimming with creative ideas, Rip It! is a hands-on handbook that will show you how to give your clothes sass, sparkle, and your own signature style.
