These jeans with 2 large tears (one in each leg) and some paint splotches might seem like a lost cause. I beg to differ. These jeans are in great shape despite some unfortunate experiences. But where to begin?
I'm always kind of amazed at how substantial a ripped and mended pair of jeans feel when you put them on and run your hands over the texture, and they only get better with time. More rips and more mending and patching, and the softest, strongest jeans that fit your body just right.
I've been working on a handful of sashiko projects, and was feeling comfortable enough in my skill to branch out into a variation that has my contemporary style combined with more traditional sashiko style mending.
