I've spoken before about the need to invest in quality jeans (just say no to Mom Jeans!). So let's say you splurge for a pair of 7 For All Mankind Women's High Waist Bootcut Jean($165) and then rip them while cavorting with the kids at the playground.
Rather than swear and vow to never swing again, there is hope. It's called Denim Therapy. They repair your beloved pants by reweaving the fabric--forget about a sad patch job. As they put it, '??We not only fix jeans, we rebuild relationships.'?
The repair is a genuine reconstruction of the original denim material with new cotton thread applied to the broken denim area. Frugal moms know it is best to repair and rewear. Denim repair cost is $7/inch (plus shipping).
