Pretty incredible. I can't even begin to imagine what kind of folks these tailors have to deal with each day. Hats off, indeed-- such talent (and forbearance!).


Ya I can sew a button - you should see my attempts at curtains :) Hats off to the talented and tested experts....


I'm like you. I blend in; people don't notice me and I prefer it that way. It allows me to watch those around me. I've never utilized the talents of a tailor, but from your words your tailor sounds like a miracle worker with the patience of job.


Utterly inspired - lovely, lovely writing! thank you for sharing a glimpse into this world!!


Very true. I think hairdressers are also hope!

About Me

  • Carmen Staicer is a whirlwind of energy and execution, who never sleeps and drinks way too much coffee. She works from home as Social Media Programs Manager for SheKnows, and is the mom to six kids, most of whom play instruments, sing or dance and all of whom are much smarter than she will ever be. In other words, her house is never ever quiet or still. A concentration of asthma, food allergies, spectrum disorders and learning disabilities means that she spends an awful lot of time second guessing herself and Dr. Googling, as well as learning to cook everything the family might like to eat. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, boxing (she has her Black Belt in Muay Thai), sleeping, exploring coffee shops, photography, ballet class and cooking. She excels in being a smart mouth and has her major in sarcasm, with a dual minor in BS studies and avoiding laundry.
