Sewing 101: Bra Clasp Repair

Good morning, everyone!

Isn’t it funny how I seem to be perfectly fine and crafting away, when in reality, I AM IN SURGERY?!

Yessiree.  Today is the day I get my wrists sliced into.  How exciting.  Feel free to send chocolate.  I am sure that will aid in my recovery!  ;)

So, while I am high on pain pills and anesthesia, you can learn how to fix your…ahem…bra.

Because, let’s face it.  Sometimes they need mending, too.

Have you ever pulled your bra out of the washer and it looks like this?

No?  Oh, well…um…me neither.  Uh, this is um…my friend’s bra.  Yeah.  It’s Ash’s.  Not mine…

Anyway, why throw away a perfectly good bra?  It’s so easy to fix.

Start by cutting off the bent hooks and the other side.  You want these new hooks to match up.

Grab a package of these:

Pin them into place.

Sew it down and tuck the edges.

Repeat with the other side, and you’re done!

Your bra is back and fully operational; and you spent less than a dollar!  Woot!

Gee, I sure hope Ash appreciates her newly fixed bra!  ;)
