I am a vintage dress freak and have a handful of dresses that need some TLC - ripped lace and a few pieces with gold stitch embroidering (sp?) are getting really worn out. Any suggestions for a place in the GTA who could handle a range of vintage clothing repair needs? TIA

Make my jeans last longer!

Like a lot of women, the top portion of my inner thighs rub together when I walk. (No, i do not normally discuss this in public.) As a result, the inner thighs of the pants I wear most often get worn out way faster than the rest of the garment. I'm tired of replacing pants so often, or of not being able to wear my favourites anymore. Are there any products/methods out there to prevent this wear from happening so quickly? [more inside]
