hehehehe... -don't worry, it's all long since done, and I'm not taking anything back to him - not vintage, anyway. Modern stuff he's great at, but vintage stuff just puzzles him for some reason.
I just had to have him let an inch back OUT in the legs, so I was patient when I realized there was no good in ranting at that point. Damage done, zipper shortened, but no great change. Just a nonsensical departure from it's original configuration. Bleah. The suit you saw me in Friday at the QM (or were you only there Saturday?) is done, and doesn't need any more work. He will not touch it again - promise.
