Multi Mended Pant

Some of my favorites insist on being really delicate, like these fine floaty silk pants that were fine for years but now keep trying to give up the ghost. So I keep underpatching. With the same batch of Indian marbled silk scarves I used on the unaccountably beloved tee, used in double thickness, and sashiko-ed and/or exed in place. The knee came first and I did it properly, cutting the hole and fitting the patch, then I got lazy and left the rips raw. Not sure how long we can go on like this.
