9781849495547: The Fashion Factory

The Fashion Factory is a new kind of making book for today's highly fashion-aware girls and young women. To create the clothes seen within the pages of this book, you don't need any special skills other than an interest in fashion and style, a willingness to have a go and cut up old clothes plus a love of rummaging around in thrift shops. As well as teaching you the basic set of sewing skills as you create garments such as The vintage scarf top and The dungaree dress, The Fashion Factory will aid you to develop an eye for trends, styles, silhouettes, colours and prints. With the projects arranged from easy to intermediate, you can start with the garments that you can tackle by yourself even if you've never used a sewing machine before. The Fashion Factory offers an alternative to shopping on the high street. By encouraging the creative upcycling and repurposing of textiles, making your own cloth can avoid waste rather than add to landfill. Learning to make clothes also develops other skills, such as maths, problem solving, planning, hand-eye coordination and patience.The basic construction methods of garments have many elements in common, so this repetition aids accuracy and speed, whilst the personalised decorative elements really make each piece unique. The book includes 12 projects, varying in difficulty and style, but all with a focus on creating something individual that the designer/maker will be proud to wear.

About the Author:

Amanda Riley made her first dress in 1976 on her grandmother's Singer sewing machine. She was 8 years old and she was hooked. By the age of 14 she had her own small business making clothing for friends and family. At 16 she took part in her first fashion show in the local town hall. The collection sold out in minutes. Following a career as a designer in Milan, Hong Kong and the US, Amanda stepped back from the main-stream fashion industry due to her growing disaffection with its harmful effects on both the planet and society. As an antidote, Amanda started The Fashion Factory in 2009. Her classes are different, cool and fun - a far cry from the dreaded needlework classes of old. Amanda's approach is to encourage students to look at styles and trends, fashion and textiles, and pick something wearable and unique to make for themselves. She starts with the 'look' and makes the practical techniques simple and approachable. This easy and creative style means that demand for her courses is huge and waiting lists are full. There is no other fashion school like The Fashion Factory and her last summer show was featured on Vogue.com. The Fashion Factory is her first book.
