Sew Subversive is about making fashion your own, whether it'sembellishing or customizing off-the-rack clothing or transformingclothes that have lost that loving feeling. The threetwenty-something co-owners of Stitch Lounge, an urban sewing studioin San Francisco, teach you, in plain, fun language, how to do it,whether you're hand sewing, machine sewing, or, in a few cases,simply wielding a pair of scissors.

The first three chapters lay the ground work: Hand Sewing Basics,You and Your Machine, and Gearing Up, which includes. Fabric 101,how to set up a sewing space, and a run-through first project onthe sewing machine. Then the fun begins with Embellishing andCustomizing projects, including adorning your pant legs withribboning, turning a computer-scanned image into an iron-on thatyou can apply to a t-shirt or skirt, taking in a skirt, oruntapering a pair of pants (the authors believe tapered pants arethe devil's work). Then move onto Refashioning: The Next Life ofYour Old Clothes and turn a t-shirt into a skirt, a sweater into ahalter top or legwarmers, or a pair of pants into a hip belt. Thereare 22 projects in all, some of which only require an iron and/orpair of scissors, while others can be sewn by hand, for thosereaders who haven't yet made the sewing machine plunge.
