About this title


Ribbons, braids and cords of all colours and textures, together with beads, sequins and buttons, are a long-established element of the fashion world, used widely as decorative trimmings, belts and fastenings on clothes, shoes and hats, as well as for adorning wrists, necks and hair. Louise Turner demonstrates some of the many inventive ways to use these versatile materials to create and embellish a wide range of clothes and accessories, from skirts, dresses, tops and jackets to scarves, wraps, bags and hats. Using a selection of the most fabulous ribbons in silk, satin, organza, taffeta, lace and velvet, along with a dazzling array of beads, tassels, braids and other trimmings, Louise shows how to transform existing items in your wardrobe into unique bespoke clothes and accessories. With characteristic flair, her love of colour, design, drama and texture evident in every piece, she also shows how to make a number of items from scratch. Covering techniques for beadwork, machine embroidery, bows, ruffles, puffs, pleats and ruching, this book offers specific instructions as well as plenty of design ideas for making clothes and accessories that are tactile, exciting and vibrant with colour. With 30 projects, from party outfits and evening bags, to summer hats and baskets, there is something special for every occasion.
