"Sew Subversive is about making fashion your way, whether it's embellishing or customizing shirts or skirts you bought at the store to make them uniquely your own or transforming clothes that have lost that loving feeling into something completely different and absolutely you - t-shirts into skirts. sweaters into hats and leg warmers, pants into hipbelts. For some projects all you need is an iron or a pair of scissors. But it won't take long before you'll be wielding a needle and thread like a pro and looking at sewing machines with longing and envy. Don't settle for what everyone else has - subvert fashion and sew subversively." -- back cover.

I have seen some really attractive repurposed clothing, but most of the outfits in this book look amateurish, peculiar, and not very interesting.

The projects are OK, but the overviews, how tos, and conversational style are great.

This book is like a "duh" moment: I coulda done that! Filled with very simple "think different" projects, it's sure to inspire and provide courage. Great for beginning sewers. Check out the photo in the top right corner; then go to page 89 and see the original. Hmmmm.

This book has nice images, but it didn't teach you how to sew anything new, just how to jazz up current peices you already have.
