Editorial Reviews

Review

"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

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is just right for current era of disposable (cheap) fashion, the demise of home ec. and TV like Project Runway and The Great British Sewing Bee. It has the right balance of DIY, creativity and 911 sewing emergency. There is something for everyone in this little reference book.

There are seven secions covering tears, seams, lining, hems and tailoring, closures, straps and color. Each gives you 911 basics like how to sew on a button and then ways to "Make It Fabulous" like embellishment with buttons. The information on garment care is good.

The book is well-written and an easy read. The layout is clean and fresh. Really expereinces sewers probably have this info elsewhere, but it's a good book for those building a library. For those who aren't really into sewing, or clueless when it comes to mending, this book is what you need. Some of the 911 fixes do require a sewing machine.

I took sewing in junior high. Forgot most of it (a long time ago). My husband is always asking me to mend his pants and shirts. He recently asked me to mend a sweater. Even though I crochet profusely, I wasn't sure how to mend his sweater. This book had the answers. Lots of good info if you need a refresher or just want to learn more. I ordered this before it released. Unusual for me. All my crochet magazines and newsletters recommended this book as well as quilting and sewing periodicals. Great source.
