Publisher's Synopsis

Well Worn is the perfect book both for stitching pros and for those who have never picked up a needle and thread before. The sustainable darning and sashiko techniques taught in this book fight against perfectionism as well as fast fashion.

Begin by getting to grips with core mending skills, with a handy introductory compendium of visible mending techniques. Then, move on to convenient garment-led chapters, from socks to jeans, and from knitwear to stretch fabric, each with a wide variety of ideas and advice for approaching whatever piece of clothing you wish to revive.

Whether you're interested in fostering a more sustainable lifestyle, saving money by avoiding fast fashion, or simply engaging with a new creative outlet, this book is an accessible introduction for anyone looking to explore visible mending and revolutionise their wardrobe.

- Jeans
