It's back to school time for us. I love buying new clothes for my kids to wear to school, but I don't love it when they fall apart! So here are some tips on making those clothes last longer:
1. Watch fabric content! 100% cotton will shrink, fade, and wear out more quickly. Look for a blend with at least 35% polyester.
2. Sew an X at the top of pleats on a pleated skirt. This will keep pleats from unraveling and they'll hold together a lot longer.
3. Sew interfacing or a patch into the knees of pants before the knees start to wear out. They'll last a lot longer!
4. Once your kids' jeans start fraying at the cuffs apply some Fray Check to the frayed hem. It will hold together much longer!
