Minimise waste and maximise creativity with 14 stylish freehand dressmaking projects from Chinelo Bally.

Making your own clothes is a sustainable, ethical and fun craft that is brought alive by bestselling author and designer Chinelo Bally. Using the freehand cutting method for which she has become so well known, Chinelo shows how to upcycle and make stunning new items from old garments as well as making clothes using interesting new fabrics, without the need for sewing patterns.

The book features eleven projects for stylish women's clothes and three projects for children's clothes. Learn to turn a man's shirt into a fashionable dress and old pair of jeans into a sassy tutu skirt. Other projects include a one-shoulder jumpsuit and Chinelo's signature collared top. Throughout the book, Chinelo encourages the reader to make clothes to suit their own style and achieve results that are beautifully distinctive - and a far cry from throwaway fast-fashion.

Projects include:

* Women's Clothes: 2nd Date Night Dress, Angled-overlay Pencil Skirt, Asymmetric Peplum Top, One-shoulder Jumpsuit, Shirt to Button-back Dress, Jeans to Sassy Tutu Skirt, Pencil Dress Refit, Signature Collared Top, Versatile Maxi Dress, Showstopping Maxi and Strapless Wrap Dress.

* Children's Clothes: Child's Peekaboo-back Dress, Shirt to Child's Dress, Jeans to Child's Dress

Packed with tips, techniques and inspiration, Sew Chinelo reveals the secrets to producing sustainable and wearable clothes with style, feminine glamour and a professional finish that fit perfectly every time.
