Grow, Cook, Dye, Wear is a practical, holistic, and fully illustrated guide to a more sustainable way of living. Extracting from her own experience as a fashion designer and plant grower, Bella inspires a more sustainable lifestyle through a journey from seed to crop, from harvest to plant-based cooking and utilising food waste to create fabric dye for contemporary dressmaking.
Created in response to the twin dilemmas of food waste and fast fashion, the book is designed to teach readers how to grow their own food and how to get the most out of everything they grow. The book will guide you through every step of the process, you will learn not only how to forage, sow, harvest, and cook your own fruits and vegetables, but also how to use your homegrown produce to create natural dyes. Once you’ve perfected the process of dying your own fabrics, you can then transform those fabrics into exclusively designed pieces of clothing, including a shirt dress and a duster coat, using Bella’s five full-size pattern sheets that come together with the book!
