"Repairing or reinventing old clothing goes hand-in-hand with upcycling and creative repurposing, and this well-organized book is appropriate for sewists (and nonsewists) of all skill levels." --Library Journal
"This is truly a book every sewist should have on his or her bookshelf. Denise's book is the perfect tool to help us learn everything about mending our clothes. From fixing a ripped seam or a torn slit in your favorite skirt, to shortening sleeves and replacing jacket linings, Denise gives step-by-step instructions with color photographs to guide us through the processes. She also includes several cool fixes to renew old and boring clothes--like adding piping, appliqueing lace, dip-dying clothes for cool color transitions, and creating ruffles...just to name a few." --Felicia's World
