Fans of Katrina Rodabaugh's first book "Mending Matters" will love this second book which focuses on renewing clothing via stitching and dyeing as well as repairing garments through patching and darning.

This book focuses less on mending technique than her first book but it still provides clear diagrams and instructions for each project.

By far the most interesting part of the book is her wonderful section on plant-dyeing clothing. Dyeing using Goldenrod flowers, Black Walnut hulls, Queen Anne's Lace flowers, flowering Quince branches, garden flower mix, Peppermint leaves, Yellow Onion skins and Avocado pits and skins are explained step by step.

The Table of Contents with a list of projects can be seen in photos 3 and 4.

From the publisher's website:

"Slow fashion influencer Katrina Rodabaugh, bestselling author of Mending Matters, teaches readers how to mend, patch, dye, and alter clothing for an environmentally conscious, reimagined wardrobe Slow fashion influencer Katrina Rodabaugh follows her bestselling book, Mending Matters, with a comprehensive guide to building (and keeping) a wardrobe that matters. Whether you want to repair your go-to jeans, refresh a favorite garment, alter or dye clothing you already have—this book has all the know-how you’ll need. Woven throughout are stories, essays, and a slow fashion call-to-action, encouraging readers to get involved or deepen their commitment to changing the destructive habit of overconsumption. Rodabaugh has an engaged community (her kits are in high demand and her classes sell out quickly) and a proven ability to tempt sewists and nonsewists alike to take up needle and thread."
