I recently found myself in a fashion predicament: a few buttons on my favorite coat popped off. My experience in sewing was limited to my middle school home-ec class, but I was determined to fix my buttons myself without a trip to the local alterations shop.
Luckily, I was able to find an easy, step-by-step guide online.
What you need:
- A basic hand sewing needle
- A double threaded thread, knotted
- Jacket or coat
The video is easy to follow and sewing the buttons back on my coat was quick and harmless! This is definitely a useful skill you will be able to use again and again in the future.
