Sometimes customizing what you wear can be far more satisfying than retail therapy, and it costs little or nothing. Inspired by the current trend for craft, DIY-culture and boho chic, this is a cool, quirky and creative guide to making and customising your own clothes, bags and accessories.

Containing more than 40 projects, none of which require prior skill or a sewing machine, these are clothes that anyone of any age can make. From customised hand-me-downs to elegant evening wear, it is packed with ideas that the reader can adapt to their own wardrobe. Full of tips on where to find inspiration, and with a special section on repairs, DIY Fashion is a funky survival guide for the creative, alternative fashionista.
