My mother has lent this to me- The Yestermorrow Clothes Book: How To Remodel SecondHand clothes by Diana Funaro. Oh how I want to keep it. Great photos and superlovely reworking-of-vintage ideas. Only problem being that the clothes they are suggesting remaking are originally Victorian. I guess that is something else to be woeful about, the days when Victorian clothes were tossed into thrift shops to be made into heartbreakingly romantic 70s threads!

Looky here found it on Amazon… and on a smaller bookstore site.
