omg! not that jacket!

ugh, yes, that jacket. it looks either like toothpaste stain or someone shot a big load all over me. which is why im hesitant to take it to a dry cleaner and have to explain...

Most dry cleaners have seen the odd toothpaste splorch. Shyness = not like you.

My darning successes generally involve black sweaters with tiny inconvenient moth holes. You just have to be super-careful to never vary the pressure on your stitches and don't be too keen to seal the hole in like three goes. I sew an X to start, but leave a thread tail on the reverse and don't knot the initial stitch, Then I sew a square shape at an angle to the X and carefully stitch the hole closed, last poke of the needle bringing thread out the back. Cut the thread from the needle and tie off the threads in such a way that you gather the work together before knotting the threads securely. That work?

My favorite coral wool pea coat, I'll miss you, but coats that are a size too big are not keeping the cold out!

simple black wool lightweight coat with v sharp shoulders and hidden hook closure..

i still miss this coat! whoever stole it, there's no way it fit them as well. jerk.

RIP oversized pj harvey 'to bring you my love' shirt from the mid-90s. guess i got rid of it. what was i thinking?

slightly concerned that my skinny puppy t-shirt vanished in my last move. i don't really wear it and i'm not a huge fan or anything but i hope it's still around..
