Tough Man Work Pants Mending – Continued
Updated: Jun 2, 2022
It is a joy to have a son-in-law in carpenter’s training who works so hard that he makes LOTS of holes in his work pants.
Sometimes I’m honored to get to RE-mend some pairs. You can go back to my post of July 19,2017 and can offer this additional advice. Plan on work/wear-tested updates as they reveal themselves!
Below, see the current challenges – and my solutions. I didn’t think to take photos until after mended, so the stitching you’re seeing is from the mending process. In general, for several reasons, I decided to try patching on the TOP side rather than the bottom. I used polyester thread and a size 90 Jeans/Denim Needle. I’ll talk about a tension frustration in a bit….
For patches, KEEP KEEP KEEP a ‘past mending’ pair of pants of various colors!!!! I can’t stress that enough.
