A dangling drawstring can mean the difference between enjoying the view and freezing your socks off in a high-altitude wind.

Fortunately, a loose drawstring is easy to fix. Keep yourself snug with this simple repair.

If you don't have a cotter pin, a safety pin works as well.

    • Insert the cotter pin—still holding the drawstring—into the drawstring hold.

    • In this case, the drawstring hold is a small hole in the garment. The drawstring hold is just the place where the drawstring will be sewn to the garment. This may vary from garment to garment.

    • Pinch the drawstring inside of the drawstring hold.

    • While holding the drawstring, pull the cotter pin out, sliding the drawstring out through the spilt in the pin.

    • While holding the drawstring in the hold, mark where the drawstring will be sewn with tailor's chalk.

    • If you aren't sure where to sew the drawstring, feel for the other end of the drawstring. In most garments, the drawcord is symmetrical.

    • Sew several passes along the chalk line, being sure to catch the drawstring.
