Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This elegantly photographed collection of scarves to make and enhance embraces the simple and the sensational. The fabrics specified include those found in notions departments and luxurious upscale fabric stores...and results subtly accent an ensemble or create daring and dramatic fashion statements. Clear, numbered directions for making and decorating various types of scarves are punctuated with profiles of the craftspersons....Those less dexterous who prefer simply to shop for their finishing touches, and those who have successfully created their scarves of choice, will appreciate the final chapter, which offers several pages of photos and diagrams of ideas for typing, draping, wrapping, and even decorating with scarves, allowing anyone to tie one on with style.--Booklist. 128 pages (all in color), 8 1/2 x 10. NEW IN PAPERBACK.

Synopsis:

Light and gauzy or thick and woolen: nothing completes an outfit like a gorgeous scarf. Make your own, or dress up one that's store-bought, with patterns created by a roster of acclaimed designers. You won't believe the variety of techniques for embellishing these simple items! Decorate with beads, dyes, embossing powders, fabric inks and paints. Try tassels, or adorning vintage lace with silk flowers. Go mad over a crazy quilt scarf, swoon over sequins, and cling to a wrap with flowers and vines. Finish off by experimenting with the chic tips for tying and wearing your new fashion statement.
