Of course- one little hole versus an entire fray? dunnoHOW IT’S DONE
We reconstruct the hole by using the threads, taken from the same garment. There are two methods of reweaving: French weaving, weaving thread by thread to match the pattern and piece weaving, weaving in a piece of fabric from the same garment. Knitwear Doctor always uses the method which will get the best result and make the customer happy. Many tailors and cleaners use our services because we do it right, no mending just weaving. The cost starts at $30 and goes up depending on the size of the hole, if you have more than one hole in the garment, we will quote you a price per job, not hole. It’s cheaper by the bunch.
No- you cannot "cut in" an extra piece of fabric as you suggest.
Hmm. Thanks. I'll look into it. I should mention though that the fraying is lateral to the vertical sticthes that close the pocket together.
I recently picked up a suit while thrifitng which is in great condition except for the fact that the edges of the pockets of the suit trousers are frayed (I did not notice this before I boiught the suit). The trousers are too long for me and will need tailoring so my question is this: can I use the excess fabric from shortening the trousers to repair/replace the frayed bits of the trouser pockets?
