Originally published by F+W, this book is super fun but has been gathering dust for far too long in our warehouse. Written by CP founder Shannon Okey, you can't beat the price: one mere dollar.

- Convert a men's buttondown into the sleek and sleeveless Office Corset, or combine it with a flowing skirt to create the surprisingly feminine Men's Shirt Dress.
- Reinvent a pillowcase and a flat sheet to create the cute and comfy Bedhead Top and Asymmetrical Sheet Skirt.
- Pair some ripped-beyond-wear jeans with some trendy fabric to make the Dangerous Cherry Handbag, or cut a few out-of-style pairs into panels for the Denim Corset Skirt.
