We went to Carlisle yesterday, would you believe there was a Pirelli car rally! There were loads of old rally cars, right in the city centre ready to start the race! It was brilliant.
Anyway, there was also a vintage fair, we didn't know until we arrived but there it was, at the Sands Centre which was where we parked. After we'd tramped around the shops, had a rest in the garden of Tullie house and a walk around Bitts Park we went to the fair.
This is where help is needed. I bought a dress, got it home, washed it and when I hung it up to dry noticed a tear in the seam. It's where someone had cut out the care label. I should be able to mend it but how? The fabric is cotton/polycotton but very lightweight and the fabric is slightly frayed, I don't want to do too much trial and error with it for fear of making it worse.
The internet has offered me three solutions -
1. running stitch to gather the fabric up as carefully as possible then over stitch
2. use fusible webbing
I'm tempted to go for both as I guess the webbing would stop any further fraying so I could then sew it. I know it's hard with no photo but what would you do?
