Practical, clear and beautiful

I love the idea of valuing something that is imperfect, repaired -- this book has a philosophy of its own. It is also very practical, showing me exactly how to save my favorite garments and give them a longer life. The results are whimsical and lovely.

I really liked this book, the examples were great. But, I have spent my life trying to make my mending invisible and I don't know if I can change now.

A great guide. It's clear and concise with easy explanations and great pics. And it covers working with fabrics in addition to or instead of denim which is very helpful.

-i wish the book was longer or had a LOT more examples. i loved the idea, but perhaps my tastes are just too picky for the examples given.
