Designer Labels

Because I wear my own creations so often, I rarely deal with the dreaded scratchy tag.  I was reminded today just how awful those edges can be – the back of my neck has a lovely raw spot to prove it.

Generally, I am loathe to remove a tag from a piece of clothing (and I would never dream of doing that to a vintage piece), but this was a contemporary knit dress that is nothing special.  So that sucker is going to be removed.  Death to nylon thread!

Drat, my seam ripper is hiding again . . .

  1. Ahhhhh...the label that I hope to find each time I look in a vintage garment above all others (yes, I know the likelihood of unearthing vintage Dior in a small Canadian town is next to nil these days, but a gal can always hope). Still, as a fellow loather of scratchy tags, even if it was Dior, I too would carefully remove it, as that feeling just makes wearing a garment soooo unpleasant.
