Creatively mend and customize your old clothes to revitalize your outfits and save the planet

Bring new life to your old clothes and fabrics with this fun, easy-to-follow guide to modern mending.

Across the globe, we send tonnes of clothing to landfill each year. In fact, clothing consumption in the UK and US are one of the highest in the world. But the good news is that mending is trending, and it’s never been easier to repair and reinvent your favourite clothes.

Inspired by the slow fashion movement that’s taking the sewing world by storm, Erin Lewis-Fitzgerald has created a comprehensive guide to mending your own clothes in a way that combines creativity and sustainability. In Modern Mending, she demystifies mending and shares step-by-step instructions for a range of techniques, including stitching, darning, patching, needle felting and machine darning.

So next time you tear your favourite jeans or find a hole in your jumper, think twice before throwing them away. With Modern Mending, you’ll gain the skills and confidence needed to rebel against fast fashion now and for years to come.

Learn how to mend your clothes for stylish, rejuvenated outfits that will save the planet!

Step-by-step instructions for a range of mending techniques - stitching, darning, patching, needle felting and machine darning

“Troubleshooting section” at the end of each tutorial, as well as a “Quick-fix” section for buttons, snags, ladders and zippers

22 case studies of mended garments, with the story behind each repair and the techniques and materials used

Interviews with eight inspirational modern menders from around the world, with photographs of their work

“Lewis-Fitzgerald is on a mission to make mending cool again…Modern Mending details fixes for all manner of wardrobe malfunctions - from missing buttons to heart-rending tears in your favourite top. It’s mending, but not how your grandparents might know it.” - Stuff.co.nz

Erin Lewis-Fitzgerald is Australia’s leading clothes-mending practitioner. Her mending has been displayed in art exhibitions in Melbourne and Adelaide, and she teaches workshops across Australia. Erin began her career in journalism at 15 and over two decades worked as an editor, sub-editor, writer, and photographer. After leaving journalism she founded Bright Sparks, a social enterprise that repaired and reused electrical appliances to keep them out of landfill. When she’s not trying to save the planet (stylishly), you can find her making tiny dioramas for her magic letterbox or cooking up a storm for her cookbook club, the Ottolenghi Appreciation Society. Her retirement dream is to run a deluxe toy hospital for stuffed toys.
