【How to】 Finish Sewing A Rip

Making a Rip Skirt

You are going to find a few different methods to make your rip skirt Hawaii. One of those methods starts with making sure you have enough fabric to get the task done right. You can always trim off excess but you can’t add fabric when you do not have enough.

The fabric can be surf board shorts material as that fabric allows you enough room to freely move as you need to move. Plus the material provides enough modest coverage without being clingy.

There are two ways to fasten the skirt. One way is to use a hook and loop system which gives you adjustment capability when you want comfort or a looser fit. Or you can use Velcro closures at different parts of the top hem.

Those multiple locations will allow you to make adjustments as well as make sure you have a secure hold when you walk or bend over. The surfboard material is also quick drying so you do not have to sit uncomfortably while waiting for the fabric to dry.

Also, you can layer it and add an inside pocket to hold keys, etc., The layering gives you flexibility and adjusts your look as you see fit.


Sewing A Patch To Fix A Large Hole

If you have a large hole at the crotch that cannot be sewn neatly using the first method, you can consider sewing a patch over the hole to cover it entirely. 

There are two ways to do this. You can use a patch that matches your jeans to sew to the inside of the patch so that the hole is still visible but with a layer of denim underneath to protect your skin. 

Another way is to use the patch as a decorative element by sewing it on the outside of the jeans. You can play around with the design of the patch to create a fun design and even sew on several other patches on other areas of the jeans to create a unique look.

How to sew a patch on the inside of your jeans crotch:

  1. Clean up the frayed area around the hole, similar to the first method. 
  2. Cut the patch to size. You should leave some room for seam allowance. If you have a serger, you can clean up the edges around the patch to make sure that it doesn’t fray in the wash. Alternatively, you can also use a blanket stitch or buttonhole stitch around the edges to achieve the same effect. 
  3. Place the patch inside of your jeans, with the right side of the patch facing the inside of the jeans. Make sure that the hole is completely covered by the patch, and use sewing pins to pin the patch in place. 
  4. With a needle and a thread that matches your jeans, hand sew or use a sewing machine to sew around the hole to attach the patch to your jeans. You can use a straight stitch for this step. 

And the patch is completed! Alternatively, you can also sew the patch on the outside of your jeans to create a unique design element.

How to sew a patch to the outside of your jeans:

  1. Clean up the frayed area around the hole, similar to method 1. You can use a serger or hand-sew the edges of the hole to prevent further fraying. 
  2. Use a patch or a piece of denim in whatever color that you’d like and try it over the hole to make sure that it can cover the hole entirely. You can be as creative as you want when choosing the patch design and color. You can even use a patch with a unique design to achieve a playful effect.  
  3. Place the patch over the hole and pin it in place. If you are using a piece of denim, make sure that you use a serger to clean up the edges of the patch. Then, fold in the seam around the edges of the patch and pin the patch to your jeans with the seam folded. That way, when you sew, you will sew the seam of the patch and at the same time attach the patch to your jeans. 
  4. Using a straight stitch on your sewing machine or a running stitch, if you are hand-sewing, sew the patch in place. If you want to create a playful design using patches, you can repeat these steps as many times as you’d like to place patches all over your jeans. The crotch area can be an awkward position for a patch, so if you have more patches on your jeans, it will look like a design element rather than a fix. 

You can take this opportunity to reinforce other areas in your jeans that suffer a lot of friction, mainly the bottom and knees areas.

How to Sew a Patch to Cover a Hole in your Pants?

Sewing a patch to cover a hole is a labor-intensive procedure. You will have to start it by looking for a cloth that will match the torn pant. It will require a strong command of the sewing machine or thread and needle, if you are going to sew by hand. But the end result of this procedure is usually very neat and long lasting. Let’s look into how to sew a patch. 

  • Find a Patch

The first rule is to find a cloth that matches the outer side of your denims or pants. If you want to have fun, you can also find a patch that pops out and gives you an applique look. One thing that you have to be careful about is that your patch material should not be thicker than your pant’s fabric. 

  • Cut your Patch

Cut a patch at least 1 inch larger than your hole. This will give you extra seams to sew the patch securely in place. Do remember to cut out the frayed threads around the whole before you attach the patch.

  • Pin the Patch

Lay your jeans flat on a surface and pin the patch in place. Make sure to turn your jeans inside out during this procedure. 

  • Start Sewing

Sew on the perimeter of the hole while removing the pins as you proceed. Do not stitch very close to the edges. Zigzag stitch will be the best to execute this step.

  • Resew the Patch

For more strength, resew the patch on the same lines. Cut out all the extra thread. 

How to Mend a Ripped Seam on Pants?

Mending a ripped seam can be done in a jiffy with a machine or by hand. In case of pants, using a machine is advised because its material is usually thicker than other clothing and you need extra strong stitches. This does not mean you cannot do it by hand. When sewing with your hand, it will be better to do fine stitches with a double threaded needle to get a good result. Following are the steps to mending a ripped seam on pants.

  • Turn the fabric inside out and find the ripped seam.
  • Pick a thread that matches the pant fabric. 
  • Thread the needle with double thread and make fine stitches that are close to each other. Match the thread color with the fabric. 
  • If you are sewing by a machine, place the pants under the foot and get ready to sew. Set the stitches to a fine, zigzag or straight stitch.
  • Start sewing your seam at least  ½ an inch before the ripped area and sew ½ an inch beyond that.
  • For help, you can follow the holes of the previous stitching. 
  • Cut the extra thread on both the sides and you are good to go.
  • If you feel like your fabric may need some more strength, you can double stitch on the same lines.

A Rip Skirt That Has No Pattern

It is possible to make your rip skirt without using a pattern. The amount of fabric needed will depend on two things- your size and how long or short you want the skirt to be.

Next, you will want about 3 times the size of your hip circumference no matter how heavy or light the fabric is. It is possible to go 5 times if you want. If you want to go below the knee then a fabric width of 45 inches is required.

Now you can use drawstrings if you want and to get the channel right you will need your hip circumference plus 1 yard. 1/4 inch thick drawstring, ribbon, and so on will suffice as a closure. If you want a 3 channel skirt and you have a 36-inch waist then you will need about 6 yards of material.

  • Step 1. Cut the fabric to width size adding 1 inch for seam allowance. The cut should be cross-grain.
  • Step 2. Cut the length to size but add 5 inches for hem and waist channels.
  • Step 3. finish the side seam open edges by zigzagging or serging.
  • Step 4. sew the side seams with right sides together.
  • Step 5. Sew the casings or channels giving yourself about 3/4 of an inch per channel.
  • Step 6. prepare the underlap with a 9-inch length then folded in half and a 1/4” seam allowance and attach it to the wrong side of the fabric at the back
  • Step 7. Insert the ribbon or drawstring through the channels.

And you are done.

Check Your Seam

Stacy Fisher

Turn your garment inside out and take a look at where the ripped seam was. If you see any spots where you've missed sewing or a place where it doesn't look secure, turn the garment inside out again and make some additional backstitches until you're happy with the result.

Give your garment a nice press with the iron focusing on where the ripped seam was.
