How many times have you looked at something and thought to yourself, "Humm, if that collar was a bit smaller, the waist nipped in more, maybe as a vest and not a dress, or it doesn’t really look like it did in its eBay photo?"
Well, put a twist where it outta be!

It’s the ultimate eco chic book to rethink fashion on a budget with you in the design seat.
Easy-to-follow designs rev up your creative juicesand quickly turn you into your personal urban outfitter.
Repurpose a dull dress into a cute capelet, a boxy sweater transforms into a flirty corset, or renew a chewed-up shirt and basic undershirt into a oh-so-adorable bib-front tank top.
Plenty of photos, clear directions, and lot’s of flair from the designer behind B. Artisse Originals, a one-of-a-kind line of reinvented vintage originals, to guarantee that nothing in your closet will ever be boring and unworn again…
