I turned it back to front and rounded the neckline to make it comfortable as the new front neckline.
I found this lovely leather weekender bag at a flee market for 130 Dkr (19$, 17€, 13£). It was cheap because the zipper was broken. Changing a zipper is not the easiest task, but I thought it would be worth it.
When I came home, I managed to get the zipper-closing-thing (English?) back on, and the zipper closed easily. I realised that it was just the stitches at one end, that had come undone.
I sewed across the zipper and placed a matching leather patch to both mend the tear and cover up the repair of the zipper.
I don't think it is that visible, that it is a repair.
I wonder what the original price of the bag was. And contemplate that refashion/altering/mending skills are worth much.
