with No Comments


Is the crotch or inner thigh area of your jeans or trousers wearing thin? If so, you are not alone - this is the most requested tutorial I am asked for!

Here I will show you how to mend the inner thigh/crotch area of your jeans or trousers using your sewing machine.

Using a sewing machine can result in a really camouflaged repair that will be barely visible to the eye.

If you prefer to mend your jeans or trousers using hand stitching, please refer to Part 1 of this video series here. Both methods for mending are great, it just comes down to personal preference.

I hope this video has you mending your jeans or trousers in no time! For more videos and super helpful tips, check out these links:
