In Wear, Repair, Repurpose, Lily Fulop welcomes beginner and experienced makers with projects to refresh their closets, make the most of thrift store finds, and give worn-out cloth new life. Illustrated step-by-step instructions demystify mending techniques, and skill-based projects will inspire readers to embrace their own personal style.

  • Darn socks
  • Hem pants
  • Embroider over stains

For anyone who cares about reducing fashion waste but doesn’t want to sacrifice style, this is the immersive guide you need.
