In every project, accompanied by stage-by-stage photographs and invaluable tips, see how you can adapt and cut away at tops, trousers, dresses and more to build a stylish, modern capsule wardrobe that you can wear throughout the year.

From the Publisher

Sew a sustainable capsule wardrobe that is tailored to you – and with it, help break the cycle of throw-away fashion.

The Re:Fashion WardrobeThe Re:Fashion Wardrobe

The fashion industry is the second biggest polluter of the environment on the planet. Every year, over 350,000 tonnes of clothing is sent to landfill in the UK – just under 14 million tonnes in the US – much of it owing to fast fashion.

Join the movement against throw-away fashion, and refashion once-loved clothing to create a sublime capsule wardrobe that is contemporary and classy.
