Repairing Rips

Hi, Andy! I just bought a gorgeous dress and wore it to my brother’s recent wedding. The skirt on the dress is black satiny-polyester material and I accidentally stepped on it with my stiletto heel! Now, there is a 1″x1/2″ rip in the skirt. I am writing to ask you the best way to repair the skirt. A friend of mine told me that I could buy a clear patch and iron it on, to seal the rip, but I wanted to write you first, to see if you had any other suggestions! Thanks a bunch!

Kristina: A clear patch may do the trick. I’d take it to a professional tailor, to see if they have a better idea.
Good Luck, Andy
