Mending Night

I took one evening this week to do some mending. Replaced buttons on shirts and restitched a few seams. One of the items I mended was a bulky sweater that may not look great but is comfy to wear around the house. It is cotton but warm enough for Georgia. Somehow both underarm seams had come out. I used an overcast stitch on my sewing machine and had the sweater back to wearable in 10 minutes.

Here is a look of the inside of the seam, you can see where some sweater threads are missing...

Here is the outside of the one will ever know...

I feel so thrifty and virtuous :)
