Choose to never throw away a holey sweater again!
Whether you want to learn how to darn from scratch or to refine skills you already have, this book offers a fresh and sustainable approach to style.
Blending practicality with creativity, Flora shows, step by step with written instructions and accompanying photos, how to repair holes and ragged edges, add pattern and create something new and beautiful from garments you thought you’d never wear again.
Always reassuring, and using projects selected from her own portfolio and wardrobe, Flora illustrates how to approach the tiniest hole to extensive damage, and everything in between.
No matter your skill level, by following Flora’s instructions and suggestions, you’ll revive your knits, give them a new look and wear them with pride.
