Here’s to new sewing projects…
lazy kitties (are there any other kind?)…
and extremely talented tailors.
Over the holidays, my favorite pink pea coat was accidentally singed by a candle. Long story. Big hole. Burnt edges. Almost cried. Don’t want to talk about it.
Luckily, the yucky brown part was not visible when I buttoned the coat, so I could wear it for the rest of our trip to Pennsylvania without being completely embarrassed. But I knew I either needed to get it fixed or, sadly, retire my favorite coat.
My tailor made it happen. She stole a small patch of fabric from somewhere else on the coat (I still haven’t figured out where — perhaps beneath the lining?) and carefully sewed it over the burn mark. It’s practically flawless. And I have a new hero.
