Lapel Help

saturday's experience, still bored about the cold ... warm lined biker jacket: vintage // dotted chiffon top: via tk maxx // long sleeve: h&m // belt: saalbau flea market, frankfurt // skirt: thrifted // tights: h&m // boots: flea market schlachthof, wiesbaden //bag: flea market, karolinenplatz, darmstadt // earrings: hottie, ny // fish necklace: flea market eberstadt ...

i met my friends at a cute little flea market on saturday. this bunch of flea market maniacs was quite lucky again although it was far too cold for a market outside.

this time i didn't pictured my new bargains ... i found some bags again, a gothic-like bandeau dress made from different kinds of lace ( i really don't know, whether i will wear it ... but it cost only 1€), two scarfs, another clock pendant and a boy's blazer. i felt so happy to found this blazer because it just fits perfectly... but at home i noticed that it's left lapel looks different than the other side does.

my grandma told me, that ironing wouldn't help ... she had been a talented tailor when she was younger, nevertheless she hadn't no other idea as well.

do you know how to bring the wrong lapel back to it's original shape? any idea?!

Ironing should solve the problem. If it doesn't, just pin a cute brooch on that lapel and it will stay in place. Post some pics for us!!

your gran is right - ironing should solve the problem. but you need to be aware that i am not a skilful tailor.. i cannot saw at all!

your dotted dress is sooo fantastic!!!!

oh i love how you belted the polka dot top and you have such a cool jacket . you know i adore this look on you
but yeah try to iron it maybe that works!
have a lovely weekend!

If ironing doesn't work you might try steaming it, then laying it flat to dry with the lapel either pinned in place or with something laying on it to press it down. If that fails, I second the suggestion of a brooch!

Love the polka dots!
