Examine the damage, ensuring that the loose stitching is, in fact, a loop.
Grab a needle threader.
Turn your jacket to the backside, directly below the loose loop of stitching.
Insert the wire on the needle threader through the lining fabric to the front side of the jacket.
Turn the jacket over to the outside.
Check that the wire diamond on the needle threader is poking up through the jacket as close to the loose loop of thread as possible.
Carefully pull the loose thread through the diamond of wire on the needle threader.
Slide the thread up to the top bend in the wire.
The thread should get caught in the top bend of the wire. If it is not caught, gently squeeze the top bend in the wire to catch the thread.
