Whenever I was changing into my pants it happened a couple of times that my zipper broke. What I then do is get annoyed and put the pants back in my closet to get them fixed when I have time. Which sometimes never happens because I had some pants with broken zippers in my closet for over a year. So I thought, where must be a way to fix them myself right? There is and it’s really easy!
What you need:
– Needle and thread
First you need to make a small cut right above the zip slider. This is going to be the new start of the zipper so make sure that you do this as low as possible.
Now you can put the zipper back on.
Now you need to make a backstop. This will make sure that the zipper is not going to fall off again. You need to do this right above the cut you just make. I used needle and thread and sew around a couple of times . Just enough to not let the zipper go back.
Now it’s done and you can wear it again! Depending on the place where it broke, the zipper can be a bit smaller.But this is a super simple way to fix it and it only took me about 10 minutes.
I also made a Instagram video about it: https://www.instagram.com/p/Cr1FM4doMRF/
