Repairs: Sewing Buttons or poppers


Sewing buttons: drop the garment with the buttons or poppers to sew on at the Studio or pop them in the post. If posting, please enclose any buttons, poppers or threads to be used in a separate envelope marked with the name they’re to be returned to so they don’t get lost. Don’t forget to add tracking and insurance if the garment is valuable.

We can also replace lost buttons from our button box for a small extra charge.

We can do invisible mending, where we select the buttons/poppers that most closely match those already on the garment. We will also choose the thread that best matches the button and fabric.

We can also do visible mending, where we choose contrasting buttons, poppers and thread so the repaired garment becomes utterly unique and a work of art.

Please state whether an invisible or visible repair is preferred when sending the garment to us.

Sewing is done by hand not machine.

Remember that this is an easy fix to learn and I highly recommend the Love Your Clothes tutorial on How to Sew on a Button
