Upcycled 100% Cotton Levi's Jeans 511 with Sashiko Style Mending
Levi's 511, 30 X 32, 100% cotton, zip fly, mens
These jeans were thrifted in Portland, and were/are in great shape other than a wicked slice on the right thigh area. I patched them up with black denim from the underside, and a reinforcing dark denim patch over the top for good measure. The pocket was also slashed, so there is an inner pocket repair with cute tomato fabric. There was also a little knee tear, patched up with tomato fabric atop a denim patch, and stitched into place with grid-like sashiko stitches.
All materials thrifted and reused.
