Fix Your Clothes

Fix Your Clothes

by Raleigh Briggs

"Unless you wear seamless, zipperless indestructible coveralls, you'd had to deal with the fact that clothes are mortal. We love them but they fail us in myriad ways...the seam that busts when you bend over. The zipper that slips down to reveal your underpants to your co-workers." Raleigh Briggs (Make Your Place) takes us on a mending journey through stocking your supplies, quick fixes, types of knots and stitches (like the classic punk whipstitch!), buttons,  mending seams, patching holes, darning holes, hemming, fixing zippers, waterproofing canvas, leather, and nylon, resources, and so much more! As always Raleigh's style is simple, playful, friendly, fun, and builds your confidence. You can do it!

"Even as a fairly proficient sewist who does a bit of dressmaking, I learned a few things and this is a really handy guide to have around, whatever your sewing skills (or lack of)."
