Embellish Chic by Connie Long
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Embellished clothing is once again in vogue, offering an antidote to the uniforms of mass-retail fashion. With tasteful additions of beads, trims, and other embellishments, those ubiquitous T-shirts, jeans, and plain-Jane togs assume a new and unique chic. The smart ideas and clear directions filling this book are the only prescription needed to wipe out fashion ennui. The five chapters of Embellish Chic present myriad techniques for decorating clothing: Beads, Buttons, and Sequins; Trims; Fabrics; Hardware; Threads; Step-by-step photographs provide the foundation for everything from beading, applique and embroidery to decorative use of zipper teeth and grommets. The book is illustrated with clothes that range from casual to quite fancy, and readers can adapt each process to their choice of garment or style. Appeals to a younger market as well as fashion-savvy older women. Answers the consumer's demands for unique but affordable clothing. In full colour throughout: with 175 colour photographs and 30 colour line drawings.
