SUPERDENIM SMALL QUESTIONS THREAD (Use instead of making new threads)

Recommended Posts

Does anybody have some sort of guide to fixing broken chain stitches? My Full Count 1108 has a broken chain stitch on the inseam about 2-3" below the crotch. I was able to pull the "loop" so that it's flush on the outside, but I'm sure this won't hold for long. I've had this happen on other pairs and have never really understood how to fix it, I'd always just snip the thread when a few stitches came loose on the outside, then haphazardly sew around the area with navy thread hoping nothing else would break. Obviously, this isn't the "right" way to do it.

I know there must be some way to fix this and maintain the proper stitch appearance on the outside, but heck if I know how to do it. Google-fu has not found me anything useful.

^ Just do a running chainstitch across the length of the broken area by hand, making sure to overlap on either end with the remaining stitching and, in particular, to penetrate through the existing "chain" loops in order to prevent further unravelling. Googling "running chainstitch" should be enough to get you started.

Thanks Julian, I'll give it a try. Too bad I never had a home economics class in school or anything like that which would've taught me anything about sewing. I basically always feel like I'm on my own with these kinds of repairs. :(

It has been many years since I've bought a new pair of raw denim. My favorite pair from back in the day were a pair of Dior MIJ 19cm jeans. Does anyone know of a similar cut and weight pair? I'm not sure if Dior still makes these.
