A great find 😄

Brunswick, Victoria

I found a Country Road jumper at the local charity shop. Brand new extra fine Australian Merino wool but with its shoulders and neck band sewn inside out. Calls for a bit of embroidery to disguise, the voila new to me jumper in time for winter ❄️😃 🧵🧵 #handstitching #wool #slowstitching #repair #sustainablefashion #renew #revamp #mending #visiblemending #handstitch #woollens #australianmerino #opshopfind #embroidery @countryroad
