"Recycled Chic is for those who aren't content to look like everyone else. It both inspires and instructs on ways of recycling, renewing, and reinventing pre-loved fashion and fabrics.

Each project requires only minimal time, effort and expense to achieve stylish and satisfying results. It could be as easy as removing the sleeves from a frumpy dress, shortening a skirt, or adding an embellishment to a tired old top. And when your confidence grows why not test your skills creating a leather clutch from an old jacket, or a sweet summer top from a man's work shirt? Take a creative plunge and explore the possibilities to refashion your wardrobe with these unique, yet simple, projects. "
