Manchester Sewing/Mending


Chelsea VIC, Australia

17th Oct 2022

Hi there,  I have a doona cover which has developed some rips and tears on one side... In the set when I bought it was a kind of 'frilly sheet' (sorry, don't know the exact terminology!) made of the same material which has never been used and I was wondering what it would cost to essentially unpick/cut the damaged panel off the doona cover then cut the 'frilly sheet' to size (I believe there's sufficient material) and re-sew? 3 of the 4 sides will be straight forward, however there is a 3/4 length centralised zipper on the bottom for access which may be a bit fiddly. If this is something you can do, please advise =) In order to save costs, if I was to do the 'unpicking/cuting' of the old cover and the 'frilly sheet' so that all you'd have to do is sew it back together, I'm happy to do this part of it myself. Happy to travel 20-25km radius from Chelsea to drop off aforementioned items. Thanks & regards,  Glen.  - Due date: Flexible
