Make Do and Mend
We offer frugal ideas and guidance for
21st century families looking to get
more out of their favorite garments.
Originally, Make Do and Mend was a pamphlet issued by the British Ministry of Information in the midst of WWII. It was intended to provide housewives with useful tips on how to be both frugal and stylish in times of harsh rationing. With its thrifty design ideas and advice on reusing old clothing, the pamphlet was an indispensable guide for households. Readers were advised to create pretty ‘decorative patches’ to cover holes in warn garments, unpick old jumpers (sweaters) to re-knit chic alternatives, turn men’s clothes into women’s, as well as darn, alter and protect against the ‘moth menace’.
Let us show you some of our favorite tips and tricks to revitalize your wardrobe. This class will cover:
Mending a hole
Sewing a button
Heming pants or dress
Taking in or letting out a garment
Please bring one or two garments you’d like to adjust or repair.
