Fashion designer Bridgett Artise gives vintage garments that have lost their lustre another chance at being fashionable. Mixing contemporary clothing with the best elements of a vintage piece - like the collar of a funky fifties housedress or the pockets of a seventies-style jacket - and piecing them back together in a whole new way, she creates one-of-a-kind garments that are both trend setting and timeless. An old-fashioned ruffled shirt with terrific buttons, plus an inexpensive tank top, can become a unique top. With fashions for every season, Born-Again Vintage updates the trends of fashion eras gone by and brings the unparalleled quality of vintage into a new age. Complete with a vintage shopping guide, handy style tips and ideas for reinventing disused cast-offs, this is a must-have for vintage shoppers and sewers alike.
