Repairing Clothing in the Evening

Cooking and Household, Sewing

I strongly believe in using and maintaining what you have, and I repair my clothing when it is damaged. This is me redoing the buttons on a manufactured dress using a stronger technique in a thread color that I felt better suits the dress (original thread was navy). In the same evening, I also repaired the shoulder of another dress and re-stitched the waistband of a skirt where the original stitching had come out some time over the years. Much of my clothing is secondhand, so sometimes things arrive in my closet with a bit of wear and tear that I need to repair before wearing, and also things can get worn while I, myself wear them.
