    Great work. I wish we had a Dena in Europe too :)

    Yeah, I wish I had this option near by. Cuffs on my Levi's trucker might not last as long as I hope and I've no clue how to repair them if something happens. . .

    Looks like a great way to lengthen sleeves too! Dena is the absolute best!

    She has another one of my vintage jackets now and I may send yet one more soon. She really inspects them and finds stuff I totally miss. Jackets come back ready to be worn care free.

    Yep. I always ask she give the jacket her “once over” for stuff I miss. I don’t know what I’d do without her tbh. All these vintage pieces need a little something. I’m putting together a list to have her ship shape the lot before winter.

    Inside and out. On one of my Hercs, she replaced both sleeve lining. They were worn out and I had no clue the extent of it. Then she fixes little details as she works through it all. I’ll always go to her with my vintage stuff.

    Speaking of cuffs..
    The Appalachian arrived and when trying it on I thought whoa these are short sleeves for a 46 jacket. Appears the previous owner had the cuffs turned in/under to shorten them. I’ll be sending it to Dena next week.

    Some are more or less than others. Average for a horsehide is $150.

    Most people ship to me. I'm in a rural area- not much walk in traffic in Avon, IL!

    Happily, Dena, but I'm in Europe. :)

    It would be more expensive and take longer for sure. I'm not suggesting you send yours, but it might be fun to know (or fun for me to tell!) - I've had jackets sent to me from the UK (of course), Australia, Holland, Germany, Russia, Abidjan, Brazil, Spain, Singapore (which I thought was the sewing capital of the world), and probably somewhere else i'm not remembering at the moment. Cool, huh?!
