#StitchDon'tDitch - How To Fix A Frayed Hole At A Seam

Posted on February 20 2023

Whether you've bought it or made it, seams are notoriously the first thing to go on a garment. Maybe it's because the fabric has worn or maybe the overlocking wasn't too great. Either way, we've all been there.

And, with an effort to prevent clothes ending up in a landfill (when all they need is a quick fix!) We've put together a little tutorial on how to fix a frayed hole at a seam, so you can (you guessed it!)... stitch it not ditch it.

    A great easy way to make a strong repair even to fairly fine fabrics, have tried it on viscose and it looks fine. Thanks for this good tip.

    I found this very helpful. Have you any suggestions if the fabric is silk?

    I love your site.I have bought fabric and patterns from you and have joined the studio.
