We have been doing a lot of denim repair over the last year, but we never remember to take pictures!  Finally, we are working to document them. We will be featuring a variety of these denim repairs to help share what’s possible, and we wanted to kick things off with a less traditional one 🙂


Since this hole was so big, the owner decided that if he was going to invest in the repair, that he wanted the reincarnation to be more exciting than they originally were. We decided on bright orange thread (yes!!) and we had herringbone denim in our stock, so I backed it with that and did my decorative stitching magic to hold everything in place!



Do you have some jeans that need patching? After laundering them, give us a call at (202)567-7668 or email us at info@gingerrootdesign.com and we can help brainstorm!

*Tailoring by appointment only, closed Wednesdays and Sundays.

Also, see how we creatively fixed a fraying denim hem here!
