Ask anyone – I am the absolute worst when it comes to repairs and mending. I’d sooner throw a garment out than re-attach a fallen hem.
So, I am extremely proud to announce that I, the worst mender in the multiverse, has re-attached two buttons to a pair of jeans. I sound over-dramatic, but it’s true. I’ve been safety-pinning these jeans for 6 months now, and they’ve narrowly escaped the D.I. bin more than once.
But I love these jeans, so I decided to fix ‘em up nice. Ages ago, my brother gave me a small tin full of antique military buttons. Buttons that by chance, work perfectly with these jeans! (Hooray!)
There are a set of five buttons on each pocket that have also popped off – I’m not holding my breath that I’ll ever get around to fixing those (actually quite inconvenient to button pockets closed, but it sure did look nice….)
