Mending Matters: Stitch, Patch, and Repair Your Favorite Denim & More

We rated this book:


Not many women go on a fashion fast, but author Katrina Rodabaugh did. For her, it began with an art project and a public declaration to make simple clothing, purchase clothing from second-hand outlets, and mend what she already owned. From this pledge, a greater understanding of materials, their sources, and sustainable fashion developed. Perhaps more importantly, there may be a new wave emerging in the fashion world.

Anyone who walks down the street can see shredded jeans on passersby; maybe the next move would be to add an artful patch to those jeans. One would only need some simple, inexpensive materials and tools along with this book to significantly change one’s wardrobe with fun, fashionable patches, and stitching designs.

The writing is crisp and fun. Bodabough clearly loves what she does, and it translates into her writing. She demonstrates several different projects with clear photos and step-by-step instructions using different techniques. The results are stunning and attainable for anyone with a little practice and patience. Any lover of handiwork will appreciate Mending Matter.
