Has anyone tried to attach their cup to their 9k girdle?


Someone was selling a 9k girdle with a cup sewn into it awhile back. Not sure who listed it, but I'm sure someone will chime in on it shortly.

Ooooh nice I might give that a shot but I wasn't sure if the material could support it long term. Seems kind of flimsy.

I had to re-sew the top corners, since the cup was starting to rip through the material.

My comment was made in jest. I meant no offense.

 

And thanks for the help. I'm going to take my girdle to my dry cleaning lady because she also does adjustments. I'll see if she has any extra material lying around that would help reinforce the area after I put the cup in.

I happened across the shell of a Warrior crown. I'm interested in putting in some dual-density foam and I'm wondering if anyone has any pointers on how I would do this best?

Pants got ripped open by skate blade. Took them to a shoe repair shop (that (apparently) has experience w/ doing a local AHL team's alterations). Anyways, this is what I got back.

My question is if there's any way to alter that navy blue leather patch to royal, MTL blue?

So far I've just been trying acetone. No luck.

Yep. Attempted. Attached. Posted. Didn't appear.

Imagine a navy blue leather patch on a pair of MTL pants.

Mobile phone. Went to Full Version. Went down to attach image with post. Did this successfully. Added my text and posted. Pretty self explanatory stuff from usability perspective, but no dice. always possibility of user error on my part.

OK. So here's the damage.

 

I don't think I mind the patch as much as I do the apparent color blind work of the guy who repaired them.

Patch work looks good, but like you said, the color throws it off. At least they are whole again :-/

HA guess I'll just get myself comfortable with the "Patch" nickname.

I posted these in another topic after having them painted, but I dremel'd them down a bit and did away with the stock velcro straps. A guy at my local rink was going to rivet the straps, but it wasn't looking promising on the first pass. So, instead I used some old helmet hardware. After speedy stitching the first one I realized that the holes in the leather were too big so I axed that idea.

I know the leather is heavier than the velcro, but these probably weight close to what they did before trimming the tops down. They fit great and look a little more bad ass IMO.
