Not A Waist!

When the loop on Michael’s waistcoat frayed and broke I was not sure how to repair it because the black loose weave wasn’t something I had in my stash and I felt that using black cotton wouldn’t match well enough to not look out of place. 

But these days mismatched buttons is a thing, and so I chose something colourful that Mike would like, to make a whole new loop with and I think it looks rather fab. This repair was done by hand-stitching the edge seam closed, once I had opened it carefully with a stitch ripper to release the rest of the frayed loop. 

And he likes it!
