This book isn't really about mending. It's about a concept called Slow Fashion, which is creating new looks out of old items and slowing your fashion consumption. That's great - but I was looking for a book that would have really cool mending techniques. This book only has a few, and all of them are "fashion-y," meaning they look kinda cool on the page, but would probably mark me as a Person To Be Avoided if worn out in pubic. If Slow Fashion is your jam, this book is for you. But if you're looking to "stitch, patch, and repair" your favorite denim, look somewhere else.
