Repairing clothes...?

Post: # 63Post JennyorAlice »

How often do you find yourself darning something, whether it's your own clothes or for someone else?

I've fixed a few shirts for one of my hubby's friends. He doesn't know how to sew and I think he probably feels it's easier to have someone fix it for him as opposed to learning to sew himself. Anyway, he brings be his shirts over for me to fix because he likes his shirts so much that he doesn't want to buy new clothes to replace them.

My ex-wife did a few t-shirt repairs and take ins for me whilst we were still married.. I hate buying clothes at the best of times, so if something can be repaired it's a definite win.

Since separating, my mother-in-law has kindly repaired a couple of ties for me that came unstitched at the bottom. I'm pretty sure the cats used them as a toy.. :evil:

Well, I'm not really that good at repairing clothes, to be completely honest with you. I tend to ask my mum to stitch and sew something up for me. It saves me a lot of money, not having to buy new clothes.

I normally repair my more formal clothes like shirts and blazers and then tend to buy replacements for things like t-shirts and polo shirts. I would say I normally repair clothes maybe every few months or so. It does save money and is quite rewarding to fix something myself!

Sometimes clothes are beyond repair, or the repair implemented would only be a temporary measure and would soon come apart. Buying replacements occasionally is the best way forward. But I agree, if something can be repaired, it will save us a lot of money in the long run.
