Generation T : 108 Ways to Transform a T-Shirt
by Megan Nicolay




Overview -
Make it yours. This inspirational guide with DIY attitude has everything you need to know about the world's great T-shirt: how to cut it, sew it, deconstruct it, reconstruct it, and best of all, transform it. - Features more than 100 projects (plus 200 variations) for customized tees, tank tops, tube tops, T-skirts--even handbags, a patchwork blanket, iPod cozies, leg warmers, and more. - Not a DIY expert? Not to worry. More than one third of the projects are no sew, meaning anyone who can wield a pair of scissors can put a personal stamp on her wardrobe. But the sewing basics are here too: backstitch and whipstitch, gather and ruche, appliqu and drawstrings. - And the mission statement for Generation T: Ask not what your T-shirt can do for you; ask what you can do for your T-shirt. And then Do-It-Yourself

Transformed tees

T-shirts have long been a fashion staple because they are so easy to dress up or down. But in the end, a T-shirt is just a T-shirt, right? It is unless it's an altered T, made with the guidance of Generation T: 108 Ways to Transform a T-shirt by Megan Nicolay. This fun and creative book shows crafty women (and men) how to turn basic new or vintage tees into halter-tops, tanks with braided straps, peasant shirts, miniskirts, teeny bikinis, bags and much more. Using holes, ties, strings and scallops as embellishment, this book takes T-shirts to a whole new level.

The designs are easy to follow and many of them can be made without sewing. Those that do require sewing could easily be stitched up with a needle and thread instead of a sewing machine, making this a very approachable DIY book even for those who don't see themselves as crafty.
