It's a great post but phew does it have me depressed about mending as a judgy ethos[^1]. My clothes give out in the upper thighs and the armpits. I'm pretty sure my body shape is implicated in ways I don't want to call attention to. But no, tiny pretty 22-year-old, please tell me how your cute elbow patches confer moral superiority over replaced garments... Anyway, I still love #mending #content about covering stains and such so I will continue to subject myself to this depression.
