Description

While testing another version of my New York blouse, I unceremoniously caught a huge chunk of the bodice in my serger knife, cutting an ugly V in the front. I decided to patch the hole, which looked funny and sad. Then my husband suggested I add a bunch of patches, to make it look intentional. Et voila.
