Jazzy Jeans : Just look at the price tag for some designer jeans: they're over the top! Fortunately, there's an easy, inexpensive, and fun way to jazz up ordinary denim so it's practically red-carpet ready: these techniques for distressing, embroidering, beading, painting, sewing, and studding turn jeans, pants, skirts, and vests into one-of-a-kind high fashion. Bleach and batik, add appliqué and lace, adorn with doilies and toile, embellish with ruffles and rhinestones, and give garments a leather monogram, western flare, or rows of shisha sequins. For each cool design idea, be it a swirl skirt or funky flowers on a jacket, there's basic information and a photo, along with projects and patterns. Or, for something different, transform clothing into fringed bags, pretty pillows, and decorated journal covers.
