Rear End Mend Online Class
What’s a Rear End Mend? It’s a repair made on the seat and inner thigh area (aka dat booty and chub rub area) of your clothing. It’s the most common damage I see brought into my mending classes and I so frequently get asked about repairs for this area that I created this class! It can be awkward and tricky to mend this spot, so this class thoroughly breaks down my favorite go-to method for repairing this high wear and tear area. While I focus on the seat and inner thighs these methods can be used for all kinds of repairs, so this class is useful even if you’re just repairing other areas on denim and non-stretch materials.
This visible mending technique is inspired by quilting and sashiko. It’s highly adaptive and forgiving, but also strong and long-lasting. So you’ll be able to tailor the technique to suit your likes and needs for your mending projects.

What kind of damage is covered in this class?
In this class I work on one pair of jeans with a large hole in the seat area from beginning to end. This technique is useful for addressing rips, tears, thinning fabric, and ripples in fabric from stretch materials breaking. I focus on the seat and inner thighs, but these mending techniques can be used for all kinds of repairs on denim and non-stretch materials.
