I must make the attempt, though. Why, you may ask? Because if I leave it to the costumer, it will either not get done or will get done half-assed. Hell, I can do the latter on my own! Okay, maybe quarter-assed.
I managed to repair the threadbare spot on my rain-bodice. That boning should stay put for a while. Now, I'm attempting to fix the largest of the tears on my rain-skirt. Not pretty. My stitches are uneven and lumpy, and I've managed to sew untorn bits of skirt to each other. If you thought I looked like Bag Lady Marian before, look out!
When they handed out sewing skills, I was on the jousting line.
