The last couple of times I’ve worn my blue brocade skirt, I’ve noticed the middle of the back and side seams have started to unravel.
Initially I suspected the skirt was too tight and I was placing strain on the seams. But my flocked wallpaper skirt is exactly the same pattern and size, and is still in good shape despite being worn for much longer. Evidently the older version is more booty-proof.
So any ideas dear readers? Is brocade a particularly vulnerable fabric? Should I be stitching the seams differently?
And how can I rescue my skirt before I bust out of it, Hulk style?
