I was so bummed to find holes in the upper inside legs of my Seven Dojos the other week. I do wear them a lot. But still, I was surprised to see my thighs showing through!
I went to the fabric store and got some iron-on patches that worked great for a couple days, but then they started peeling off. I ironed them on again, and they stuck for an even shorter amount of time. So, I called my trusty tailor and asked if she could help. She said she could. Score! I thought paying her to keep them around was a good investment (and much less expensive than buying a new pair). Sorry I forgot to take a "before" picture. Here are the "after" pictures (click to enlarge and show the detail). She did a zig-zag stitch all over the patches and the holes are totally invisible now! I love my tailor. 🙂
Here’s the inside detail – the patch, covered by zig-zag stitching:
Here’s what the outside looks like:
And here’s a shot of the backside zoomed out. You can hardly tell there’s a patch there, and when I have them on, it’s totally hidden.
