Description

Reclaim your clothes and reduce fashion waste with illustrated instructions for mending and more.

Replacing buttons, darning socks and other mending skills have largely been lost to the decades. Yet, as the eco-conscious are ditching fast fashion, these techniques are being rediscovered as easy methods to revamp wardrobes with personal flair—hello, visible mending—and sustainability.

In Wear, Repair, Repurpose Lily Fulop welcomes beginner and experienced makers with projects to refresh their wardrobes, make the most of thrift store finds and give worn-out cloth new life. Illustrated step-by-step instructions demystify mending techniques and skill-based projects will inspire readers to embrace their own personal style. Learn to darn socks, hem trousers, embroider over stains, and crochet and braid rugs.

For anyone who cares about reducing fashion waste but doesn’t want to sacrifice style, this is the immersive guide you need.
