Make & Mend

Right now is the perfect moment to revisit your wardrobe! We’re all about using the summer season to re-evaluate and breathe new life into the clothing in our closet, and it seems that with a rash of new books available, it’s more possible than ever to turn what you have into what you’d love to be wearing–or to make a piece you’ve been dreaming of. Here are our top picks for great books on wardrobing and mending.

Quick tip: When choosing books, don’t go overboard and purchase more than you need. We suggest looking up each book individually and reviewing the patterns. You want to find a wardrobing book that has at least 3, if not 4 items you’ll make to wear regularly, or can imagine owning in several colors.
