Showing how to take classic mending techniques one step further to add personality and style to your clothes, Mend and Make Fabulous is a uniquely comprehensive resource that combines visual inspiration with practical advice for the fashion conscious sewer. The ability to repair and restore clothes is priceless, and Mend and Make Fabulous provides a comprehensive guide to all the classic mending techniques and then some! Not only will you learn to darn holes to perfection, this book also shows you how adding some creativity to your mending will make clothes even more fabulous than they were the first time around. While there are several blog posts and articles in fashion and mainstream media that offer a smattering of tips on the subject, none of the advice currently available-online or in existing publications-offers a detailed or consolidated resource on all the mending techniques needed to work with all types of clothing mishaps. The techniques in Mend and Make Fabulous range from easy fixes to more involved creative techniques. Each chapter comprises a series of problems and their ‘straight’ solutions, whether darning, using interfacing, or overdyeing fabric. The chapters are rounded off with a range of tutorials offering ideas for ways in which the garment or item can be made a little more fabulous, whether by adding lace or ruffles, beading, or simply using a contrasting thread for darning.
