mendandmakefabMend and Make Fabulous by BurdaStyle Editor Denise Wild

I am seeing promotions for this book coming out to allow people to pre-order ahead of release. Which leads me to ask: do you repair, adjust, or otherwise change your clothes? Add or remove decorations? Change buttons? Add ribbons?

I admit that I dont, I’m not a follower of fashion and dont feel the need to replace my wardrobe every season.  I wear clothes till they practically fall apart.  Seams wear out, buttons disappear (to be replaced by a close relative from the button box). Cotton shirts get recycled into scraps for quits, socks get holy then discarded.

What about you – are you a Make Do and Mend kind of person or not?  Who taught you to darn and mend?
