Those missing buttons, broken hooks, and zippers – we have them in our wardrobe. And most often they’re our favorite ones. A darn here, a stitch there; minor repair jobs that tailors would grimace at. And then there are those ill-fitting clothes that not just look shabby but can be uncomfortable. Specially with kids. Last year’s uniforms. Alteration and repair are cost-effective alternatives because these clothes may be too good to throw away or leave lying around.
Hint: Team up with your neighbors and split the processing cost.
