This book also shows you how to add some creativity to mending--fixing holes with studs or appliqué; hiding discolorations by dip-dyeing; concealing frayed hems by adding cuffs or trim-that will make clothes even more fabulous than they were the first time around.

This book gave me confidence to do more than simple mending. Good photographs of the process and finished product. I added a copy for my home collection for future reference.
