vintage alterations

 

Shortly before my sewing machine broke I agreed to do some alterations for a friend on two of her vintage pieces.  One, the Suzy Perette dress, is turning out beautifully.  The amazing suede jacket in the first photo is being a serious pain in the ass.  Someone had the gall to do a really good job making it – using the proper glue and fuseable – making it very hard for me and then didn’t even put a tag in it so we knew who to thank / admire.  Hopefully we can get that thing worked out Tuesday when she comes for a fitting because somebody needs to be wearing that baby.
