I own two pairs of jeans. One is a completely ripped up pair of jeans only appropriate for the summer months. The other is a pair of black skinny jeans that I bought secondhand and love to pieces, literally. I wear them just about every day. Four days ago I was putting them on in a frenzy to run out the door and the crotch ripped. NOOOOOOOOOOO. Besides being totally devastated that my favorite pair of jeans ripped, I was bottomless except for my one pair of leggings that I typically only wear at night and my summer jeans.
Back to the problem though. No jeans, huge hole (as you can see above), and a minor panic attack. Number one I am not in a place financially to buy a new pair of jeans. Number two, I can sew but I have never put a patch in anything and didn't want to do any more damage, so I walked- erm- ran my jeans to a local tailor in Brooklyn and asked if they could patch my jeans. THEY COULD! It was only 15 dollars which is a bargain compared to the money I would have spent buying a new secondhand pair of jeans and the time and frustration it takes to try them on. I really hate trying on jeans. So for the past few days I have been wearing my night leggings but now I finally have my jeans back!
