On the Ice
- Mar 23, 2018
^^ I've repaired something in a (usually favorite) piece of clothing using hand stitching and/or machine stitching. One thing I've noticed is that each repair weakens the material around it, making it tear very close to or spot on the original repair. Eventually I have to admit "it's gone" and hopefully I can re-order an exact replacement!
I'm not saying Papadakis and Cizeron were sabotaged by their own team. I'm not willing to assume or to go that far.
But the weakening of the fabric is something I've been thinking about, amongst all the talk that this problem existed earlier in the season. To an experienced seamstress/seamster, I think it should have occurred to someone that they were weakening that exact, critical spot on the costume.
Very true. Maybe she thought it would be okay one last time...She may not have had the time to completely remove the damaged part and sew something new. They probably did not have enough time to test it numerous times to see how the costume responded.
However, something went terribly wrong with these costumes. Either P/C did not received the right advice or they decided to ignore it. We may never know. They took a risk and it backfired. Who decided to take that risk ? Again, we may never know
