Fixing a Sleeve

We all have a favorite jacket. After digging mine out for fall I discovered a sequence of holes along the edge of the sleeve just above the ribbed cuff.

I decided to fix it by the use of grommets. I had a bunch of little multicolored ones I was given along with a puncher. The previous owner had become frustrated with it and had given it to me in an attempt not to throw it out a window.

A few minutes later and I had a fixed jacket! Depending on your fashion preferences you may find this horrible or wonderful. Either way I hope it gives you ideas on how to upscale something beloved of yours in the future. Up scaling an item doesn’t have to be laborious or complicated.
