I wore my boro jeans yesterday. You know how it is to wear something you love after a long time apart? Well, it was like that.
I've shown this photo before, but here, once again, are patches #1, #2, and #3. Also, here.
#4 seemed appropriate for Earth Day weekend stitching.
Boro is the Japanese term for mended and patched cloth. I love looking at boro, I love stitching boro, and now I even love wearing boro.
next boro . . . these jeans are perfect otherwise.
ah! these are delightful! i'm so pleased to see them, what fun!ReplyDelete
Hi Joe -- thanks -- I sort of look forward to the next hole!ReplyDelete
Your boro jeans are the best! They only get better with "time" :)ReplyDelete
Like fine wine. lol!
I love love your jeans! They would look great on you. I can see you are going to do something about these hems! Hugs NatReplyDelete
Marie -- thanks! Yes, like fine wine -- and women, too!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Nat -- yup, those hems look pret-ty bad. Am thinking of doing the weaving magic on them.ReplyDelete
i remember them, the stitching!ReplyDelete
love those blue jeans!
Thanks, Cristina. Now after all this carrying on, I've got to watch it with the chocolate. They're OK but I could see things heading south if I gain any weight!ReplyDelete
smashing mending...........bet youd pay an arm and a leg to get that 'designer' mend look in London or Paris too lolReplyDelete
Now you see I like the shredded look at leg ends, it proves how much they are valued somehow, that despite that, they are still worn... but I cant wait to see what you do with them lol
Lyn, I know what you mean -- honestly, I don't mind the shredded look either (just trim it when it gets too long!) but every step I take, my heel gets caught in the torn-off edge, that how bad they are!ReplyDelete
BRAVO BORO !!ReplyDelete
These mendings are great. Love the continuing of stitchwork.
These are amazeballs!ReplyDelete
I now have some great ideas for some of my tired looking clothes.
