Mending in May

I don't do much mending, but niece asked me to mend a jumper for her , and I said I would.  She has recently gone back to working in an office after sometime out, so has gone back to smart clothes - well the washing machine sulked and took a chunk out of a sleeve:

 I quite enjoyed this mend - I cut 4" off each sleeve, turned them up inside, and then hand stitched using backstitch to (a) echo the detail around the neck, and (b) allow the sleeve to stretch.

Anna I hope you like it


  1. Great solution Benta. Hope her washing machine has stopped sulking or you might have more mending to come :)

  2. You are so brilliant! Can I send you my mending to make new again?
