I must admit that I wasn't aware that Bruns had made a series of craft related For Dummies guides but I'm glad they do as the book is stuffed full of helpful information and instructions.

If your wardrobe is full of dull and disappointing clothes then you will love this book, as it will show you how to give new life to old outfits, through repairs, embellishments and adjustments. Turn a sweater in to a skirt, transform t-shirts and learn how to turn a pair of jeans in to a denim skirt. Fix stains with quick and simple tricks, learn beading or use up leftover fabric by making a Put Your Money Where Your Scraps Are Wallet.

Progressing from basic to complex, the book includes all the skills you need to become an alterations expert. Filled with dozens of projects, you can learn how to deconstruct and then reconstruct to give drab clothes a second life.

You can pick up a copy of the book from Wiley or Amazon now.
