Rip in my OrgXIII Coat! What should I do?! D: [Jul. 15th, 2010|01:23 pm]

Hello everyone! I recently wore my Organization XIII coat to a con for the first time. When I got home, I realized that the parts where the top of the pockets meet the seams had rips about 5 inches long. Here are some pictures:




I've circled the area of the coat in which the rips are (keep in mind there is one on each side of the coat:




Does anyone have any recommendations as to how to mend the rips? I really love this coat and spent a good deal of money on it...the website from where I bought the coat says it is made from artificial leather.

My first thought was to whip-stitch them but I feel like that might look bad/not hold up for long...

Anything would help! Thanks everyone.

EDIT: Made thumbnails smaller so I didn't take up the whole page ^^;

EDIT#2: This coat is lined. Sorry I didn't mention that earlier.

Honestly I wouldn't since sometimes the lining moves. If anything I would slide a piece of fabric inside (a twill preferably) and then do the same thing.

That is of course depending on what the tailor says.

Ah, that's a good idea.

I'll let you know when I've taken it. I might be able to do it tomorrow depending on how late they're open...
