Did some alterations on this Jean of California dress for @emilydew who originally had it taken in by someone else. The vintage sewing lesson to learn here is to ask any seamstress working on your vintage NOT to cut the seams. Instead of ripping out stitches she didn’t need she just cut the seam allowances down so they fray and are too close to the stitching to let it back out again after taking it in too tightly. #advancedsewing #vintagesewing #alterations #jeanofcalifornia #byegonelabels #alexsandras  (at AlexSandra’s Vintage Emporium)

For Flashback Friday and my 1991st Instagram, I invite you to this thing we used to call “a roll of film” from when we met Tommy Page and later, Marky Mark and his Funky Bunch circa 1991. Note the red nails in the right corner proving some things never change. #fbf #tommypage #markymark #rolloffilm #film #z100 #1991
