New Dress A Day


Formats & editions


GO FROM THRIFT-SHOP CHEAP TO RUNWAY CHIC EACH AND EVERY DAY!

Based on her wildly popular blog of the same name, guerrilla seamstress Marisa Lynch shows you how to easily (and affordably!) transform your wardrobe from frumpy to fabulous! With just a snip here and a stitch there, your basement bargains will rival anything in designer collections. Yes, with a little imagination—and DIY tools like needles, thread, and safety pins—you too can update an outdated castoff. Inside you’ll discover how to

ace the sewing basics (remember: safety first!)
create DIY designer look-alikes
cut Flashdance-inspired sweatshirts
make an old, tired muumuu a smashing must-have
give bridesmaid dresses a second life
dye your way to a vibrant new wardrobe
whip up accessories in seconds
style the same dress seven different ways

Complete with colorful before-and-after photos, fun sidebars, and even a groovy sewing song playlist to get you in the zone, New Dress a Day proves that you don’t need a sewing machine or a big budget to turn unfashionable trash into stylish treasure.
