My poor long sleeved navy tee shirt, has got rather thin under the arms, and developed a couple of holes. I still like this tee shirt and expect to make good use of it in the winter worn under my blue dress, where these holes won’t show anyway. Recently I have been experimenting with simple stitches for embroidery, and admiring the Japanese Boro mending technique. Inspired by this and the idea of visible mending, I decided to mend my tee shirt by hand and with a contrast stitch colour. Fortunately the sleeves have always been a bit too long, so I chopped off a couple of inches to use for patches. How long this repair will last, I’m not sure, but at least I can get a bit more wear out of it for now.
