Not much, and not exceptionally well, but well enough.
But I can mend like the best of 'em.
So when I saw these blouses for $5, it was a no -brainer.
No, they were not my size, but I could fix that.
They just needed to be taken in, and hemmed. No problemo.
After all, I've been looking for a white, button-down, 3/4 sleeve blouse for about 15 years.
(I know! You wouldn't think it would be so hard to find, would you?)
So out comes this bad boy:
dug out from the dredges of a closet I haven't seen the back of in at least 8 years.
While struggling with how to accomplish the 'fixing' of these blouses, I had to remove le machine, and all its paraphernalia from the kitchen table three times to feed the family. The cat is now sleeping on it/in it.
Aaaand then I discovered that these blouses have bust darts. So when I took them in, the darts were placed near my armpits.
I have armpit darts.
I don't know how to fix armpit darts.
So, my $5 shirts are coming with me to Boston, to find a tailor, who hopefully can put darts where darts are supposed to live, for not a whole bunch of money.
Wish me luck.
