Mend It Monday: pleated skirt

I don't know about the rest of the country, but we're in a little bit of a cold snap here in Indiana! Yes, 70 degrees is cold (to me). I've started thinking a bit about my fall wardrobe, and I remembered I had this army-green corduroy skirt that will go great with tights in the fall.

Unfortunately, it had a few holes in it. Even more unfortunately, the holes were more like rips, right along the fold lines for the pleats.

I also didn't have any thread that matched. I decided to embrace a distressed look, and went with brown thread for my mending. If you can't completely hide a repair, you might as well make it seem purposeful!

This repair only took about 10 minutes, and now I have a good transitional skirt when it gets cooler for realz. 

Are you thinking of fall sewing yet?
