We recently received another inspiring fabric fix from Virginia del Giudice, photographer and co-owner with Alejandra Agüero of La Percalina, a fine vintage clothing shop in Buenos Aires.
Alejandra and I had a beautifully made maxi skirt from the sixties at La Percalina. We worked on it for days to clean and restore it and when it was ready to be hunged we found a little hole at the front! I had to do something to rescue this beauty!
This is what we did:
No words necessary. While it might take a little practice to make repairs as lovely as Virginia and Alejandra’s, it’s totally do-able, and a wonderful way not only to save wonderful clothes and fabrics, but add a charming visual surprise as well.
