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.
