Just in Case
Bring on the mini-mergencies! A well-stocked kit ensures you won’t get caught unprepared in a dress crisis. We started with a Merchant & Mills oilskin sewing kit— filled with pins, needles, scissors, and a tape measure—then added other essentials, such as double-sided fashion tape, white chalk (for scuffs and smears), a blister preventer, superglue, adhesive and liquid bandages, dryer sheets (for static), and a small lint roller.
