I took a spectacular fall last weekend. The bod is fine (if a bit bruised) but I ripped my favorite tights and nylon jacket. Any suggestions on how to repair?

Take them to a tailor. I got a few jackets and a brand new pair of tights (I fell and ripped my new tights) fixed by a tailor and he did a great job.

"Try ""Iron Mend"""

"It's a product used for patching wet suits. It's basically an iron-on stretchy patch. I bought mine at Paragon's for about $12. Works fine with lycra, though by no means is the patch ""invisible""."
