Designer Knock-Off eBook Offers Affordable Alternative to Expensive Clothing releases new eBook of free designer inspired knock-off sewing patterns.

April 10, 2013—Northbrook, IL—Despite a recent recession causing many Americans to scale back on frivolously spending, designer clothing and accessories remain expensive and in demand. Consumers who seek to wear the latest fashions from top clothing lines are left without a cheaper alternative. However, for crafty types who enjoy creating projects at home, delivers a new eBook full of designer knock-off ideas.

According to the, the average American spends $1,700 each year on clothing and services. This is money that could be used in a more strategic manner. The additional $1,700 could be invested or go towards a homeowner’s mortgage. Instead, Americans often live beyond their means and dedicate a large amount of their income to overpriced designer duds. Along with heavy price tags, mass produced clothing causes environmental issues as well.

Elizabeth Cline, author of Overdressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion argues that the cost of high fashion goes far beyond dollars and cents. With only 3% of all purchased apparel being produced in the U.S., cheap imported clothing causes waste problems around the world. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, Americans throw away 68 pounds of textiles per person. That large number makes spending a lot of money on designer clothing all the more pointless.

For anyone looking to get trendy clothing sans the heavy price tag and waste, this free eBook offers great options. The Designer Inspired Sewing: 9 Beautiful Designer Knock Off Patterns eBook includes step-by-step instructions to make pieces that look just like the ones seen in stores. For Anthropologie enthusiasts especially, this eBook delivers lovely ideas at a much more affordable price.

For blouses, home décor and accessories, the Designer Inspired Sewing: 9 Beautiful Designer Knock Off Patterns eBook is a must have. Talented sewists offer their best versions of popular designer items and walk the reader through the entire creative process.
