Patching denim holes with lace
There is nothing you can do to prevent holes in your denim, but even worse when the denim comes with holes already in them! Sometimes it looks good, but I am not a fan of my upper thighs peaking through a hole in my jeans. I did buy a pair, because I like the style, but planned on giving it a quick fix that also looks good! Adding some lace will not take away the look of the style, but it will make them a little more modest, or help you be a little less self conscious.
All you need is some lace, thread that matches your denim as closely as possible, sewing scissors and needle.
Begin by cutting the lace slightly larger than the size of the hole you are patching. Mine came with 4 holes and I bought a yard of ribbon to be safe, and it patched them all with some left over.
By using the thread the same color of your denim this will help disguise the stitching. Keep it close to the edge of the hole. Hold the lace with one hand to prevent it from moving while stitching with the other hand. Sounds like you could use an extra hand or two, but it really isn’t too hard.
One of the holes in particular was a lot larger than the others that I was patching. (This is the photo up top) Luckily it was also near my knee so it wasn’t too awkward. 😉 I doubled up the lace on this particular hole to give it more layering.
Simply sew around each hole and tie off your thread. Trim the extra lace off to keep it from curling and feeling uncomfortable on your leg.
That is it! With very little effort or time you have made the holes look different and given it a little oomph. You don’t have to feel uncomfortable to try this trick, it makes the jeans look great and adds a little extra style!
