Part two: completely restored from that enormous crotch blowout, that pair of @stevensonoveralls saved from the grave! These have so much more life in them and can continue being worn for many more years now! #indigoproof #denimrepair #stevensonoverall (at Alberta Arts District, Portland)

Had to put my favorite motor to rest last night, 😿 I’ve already burned through it in 5 months of darning! Replaced it today so it’s back and running, but in memorium, here’s a clip of what it sounded like- this purr is what gave the machine its name: Peter Criss. 😺 #singer47w70 #47w70 #denimrepair #indigoproof (at Alberta Arts District, Portland)

This was satisfying 🙏🏻 Repaired 6 heavily worn jeans from one client. Pretty amazing how each jean was worn by this one person and the fades all matched up on each pair. Here’s some solid proof that raw denim develops into a “fingerprint” of the wearer, and I feel like I know @jebbriley in a very unique way now! Thank you for supporting my work and letting me resurrect your collection of @nakedandfamousdenim! #indigoproof #nakedandfamous #apc #denimrepair #denimevolution #indigo (at Alberta Arts District, Portland)

Yowza 👀 Repaired these @nakedandfamousdenim Elephant 2’s today, and had to stop to take a photo of how insanely beautiful they are! It almost looks like they were indigo dyed in wear patterns because the contrast is so high! Very excited to get these back to their owner, they deserve a million more miles. #indigoproof #elephant2 #denimrepair #denimevolution #indigo (at Alberta Arts District, Portland)

The moment you’ve been waiting for! Here is the “done” follow-up to Friday’s giant open @apc_paris crotch photo! These had some bulky single-needle repair work previously done that was ripping out of the jean, and was missing a pretty significant portion of the front crotch because of the abrasion from it. @rainbowe disassembled the whole thing to address the issues, and darned new fabric in the front panels. This re-repair is now even stronger than before, and constructed cleanly! #indigoproof #denimrepair #behindthescenes #wearandrepair #apc #rawdenim #crotchblowout #denimevolution #indigoproofdenimrepair #repairyourjeans (at Alberta Arts District, Portland)

Had an indigo party with @katie_porkmagazine today! She came by to overdye some vests black while @rainbowe did some custom indigo work, but ended up indigo dyeing everything! Blue is best 💙 #indigoproof #indigo #timetodye #studiovisit #indigoproofhq (at Alberta Arts District, Portland)

Party up front, business out back! One nice thing about darning is how well it can be adapted to different types of damage. The front panel of this crotch had a sizeable amount of fabric missing that has to be replaced by darning. The rear panels were just thinning out, but will be stronger and last longer because of the reinforcement darning. Both parts will age fantastically with the jeans as the repairs were done with indigo-dyed thread. #indigoproof #indigoproofdenimrepair #repairyourjeans #denimrepair #indigo #imogeneandwillie #crotchshots #repair @imogenewillie (at Alberta Arts District, Portland)

We had such a blast hanging out with the @wornwear crew on their repair truck tour through Portland! This is @yarndiva11 working some magic in the truck. We love how @patagonia is shining a light on repairing clothing and on this talented crew of tailors!
