    Wow what an amazing idea! I’ve got an inkling of how to turn trousers into skirts but I’d love to see someone’s ideas. I learnt dressmaking doing tiny clothes for my little sister’s dolls when I was in my early teens. It’s something I really enjoyed but I couldn’t draw my idea’s out properly and so floundered and stopped making clothes by my early twenties. The last things I made was a huge white druid style dressing gown and some recycled suede waist coats got fringed into cow girl style.
    I shall get me a copy of the book and get out the sewing machine.

    @Diane: It sounds like you are very creative; I wouldn’t even know where to start. I can do things like that in the kitchen ( present a meal from ‘nothing’) but have never had that gift with a needle and thread. Good luck and have fun!
