Mending matters - my first attempt to creative repair of an old pair of jeans
Mending matters and I’m so proud to show you my first major mending job performed this week. These sexy pants got ripped open when I fell off my bike after a small collision with a car (honestly, car drivers in Berlin 😓) a few years ago and spent this whole time in my closet waiting for me to fix them. Well, today is the day, so swipe left to see my questionable mending skills that I’m dedicated to improve! Thank you so much @katrinarodabaugh for you beautiful book that inspired this fix.
This mend happened exactly the day my other pants got a hole on a knee. No collision this time though, just a very extensive use. For those of you who don’t know that yet, I don’t shop for clothes since 2015 (with like 5 second-hand exception purchases maybe?) so I’m surprised these pants did last so long, being the only pants I have. I have to thinking about a mending style that would look good on them🧵 and I’d love to know if you mend too!
