seam repair on double faced butted seam
I just bought a beautiful coat in Europe, brought it back to the States, and found that the shoulder seam had separated. The cloth is double faced and the coat is reversible – the seams are double faced fleece, butted together and serged. It looks like the seamstress just slid off of the seam line and back again through this section. I don’t have a serger, so I can’t replicate the stitching. If I put a backing on the seam and darned it, the coat would no longer be reversible. Being a shoulder seam it is very visible, and under stress, what would you all do? I *LOVE* the cut and style of this coat.
