Ursula!  You inspired me to make a creative repair to a nasty OOPS!

That has to have been the third or fourth time I have made a similar  
error.  Serging curved seams is a b___h.   <sigh>

However, repairing this one actually made the garment *better*.  ;-D

Very clever catch. Well done on your sideways thinking.

Thanks!  It would have been more clever to have avoided the error at  
all, but...  ;-}

Also, this sort of thing is exactly why I do not sew for clients.  I  
can make those errors and corrections on my *own* projects, on  
others', not so much.

Thank you for that compliment! :-) I'm so flattered! ;-) Anyway, the  
embroidery is just what the caftan needed to make it special. How fortunate  
that you can make such good use of your embroidery machine. To be honest, in  
that dark fabric, I probably would have been satisfied to close the nick  
with that zigzag V in the matching colour. But the way you did it, it's so  
much nicer and really nobody will notice it.

You're welcome.  Not flattery, you EARNED it!  ;-)

I was afraid the narrow zig-zag over the nick would not hold up to  
laundering.  I could have used a contrasting color for the  
embroidery, but I had the similar color on hand.  It shows up a  
little better in real life than in my photos.
