Introdução

If you find a tear in your nylon shorts, use this guide to stitch the rip. Tears in the seam are easy to fix and can prolong the life of your favorite clothing. (Seams are two pieces of fabric joined together with stitching.) You do not have to be a seamstress to be able to mend your shorts— you will only need a needle and thread.
