A Quick Fix

Remember the hole I fixed in my Colette Albion? I found some photos which I took whilst I was fixing it, and thought they might be useful to anyone wishing to jazz up a boring sleeve head, or  fix a hole.  This technique would work anywhere on a garment if it was near a seam.

First of all unpick the seam above.

Stitch new piece of fabric over the top, inserting the tab in-between. (hopefully my photos will be more descriptive than my text!).

Flit the new piece up and give it a good press.

Flip the new piece up and give it a good press.

Trim the sleeve head to the same size/shape as the original underneath.
