Summary
Presents instructions for transforming sweaters and second hand clothing into other garments and accessories, including such items as skirts, tops, hats, vests, small bags, and leg warmers. Create unique fashion styles using old sweaters. Here is a book for anyone interested in designing a wardrobe that expresses individuality in fun and creative ways. Second-Time Cool shows how easy it can be to recycle knitted sweaters and strike a dazzling look. Simply grab an old wool sweater, wash in the hot cycle, pick up the scissors, and follow the instructions outlined in this book. Ideas include appliqués, slippers, vests, wrist and leg warmers, stylish tops, bags and purses, and much more. The book helps readers think creatively about what can become what: a sleeve can become a mitten, the center of a sweater a skirt, and a turtleneck a hat. The authors remind readers to look for interesting fashions from the past in secondhand stores. Retro is in: it's all about learning to customize, cut up, and change used clothes with confidence. Also included are: the basics of knitting and crocheting line drawings to guide readers, step by step instructions on the how to cut up a sweater to produce a unique style. Instruction pages are replete with full color photography, while images displaying the end results offer inspiration. The authors are a collective of Swedish designers, expert knitters, and fashion journalists
