Not all is lost if you discover a hole in your sweater. If you take the time to patch that hole, you can keep wearing that sweater for many more seasons. You can save yourself a lot of time and effort by taking those few minutes to mend your sweater instead of having to buy a new one. And you can be sure of that.
Hole repairs in sweaters can be accomplished in a variety of ways, but before beginning, you’ll need to decide on two crucial factors:
- Is it more important to you that this repair not be seen, or that it adds some style?
- Where do you stand in terms of expertise and resources?
1. First, let’s just jump the mending queue–let’s just hide that darn hole
If the hole is in a place where you can easily conceal it with a badge or brooch. You may add more brooches to play up the idea and make a statement, like Orsola de Castro did with her blazer with the cluster of brooches that began with covering up a hole.
And that’s a “repair” that takes less than a minute.
