Everyone likes a little boost in their ego now and then, right? I can't tell you how many times I've been told, "You are a life saver! I don't know what I'd do if you were (not around)...", etc. I smile, thank the person with true humility and claim to not be a genius or a life saver; just doin' my job - Tailoring Dreams One Stitch At A Time.
I've had many customers come to me with Fashion Emergencies. One of my favorite rescues was a Bride's Maid just a few hours before the wedding. She was in the middle of finals and discovered too late her dress was too long. With no time for her Mother to sew a hem the ladies called me for help. I knew right away what I would do for the quick fix.
What if I had not been available? Perhaps if they had a basic Fashion ER Kit on hand, they could have been just as creative with their fix.
Basic Fashion ER Kit
Let's get your kit together. It's not pricey and certainly most of the items you have on hand already (either at home or in the office). Start with what you will use to carry your ER items in. I find pencil bags work great.
