Fashionistas, thrifters, moms, bargain-hunters, and every sewist in between will find something worthwhile in this expertly concocted collection of must-know sewing tips on how to mend a myriad of problems that can threaten to retire a piece of your wardrobe entirely. Mend & Make Fabulous by Denise Wild of BurdaStyle.com does exactly what it says it will. This fab and extensive tip book helps you mend just about any wardrobe malfunction and make old pieces absolutely fabulous.

Unlike many tutorial articles and sewing tips focusing on mending tears, stains, rips, and other flaws in clothing pieces, Mend & Make Fabulous gives very detailed instructions. Instead of just telling you to use a certain stitch to mend tears, this book shows you exactly which stitch to use on a specific fabric and provides super helpful step-by-step photos along the way. This book is an encyclopedia every sewer and thrifter needs on their shelf.

If you are into upcycling pieces from your closet or pieces you find on the rack at your local consignment or thrift store, this is the book for you. In addition to tutorials on how to fix a flaw, which is helpful for any true thrifter anyways, Denise Wild’s how–to guides include upcycling techniques, as well. From ombre dyeing to adding stunning studs, these upcycling techniques are easy to follow along with and will make any piece look like a million bucks.

If you want to rescue old pieces of clothing from your wardrobe from a tiny flaw, upcycle some old duds, or even make some thrift-shop buys completely your own, it is imperative that you browse Denise Wild’s Mend & Make Fabulous. This collection will not disappoint.
