I was doing an alteration for the girls dance studio (Don't get any ideas! I don't do alterations, this was just a quick favor in exchange for Zoe's new tap shoes). The front desk staff put the costume in a bag and just handed it to me with the instructions "make the crotch 5 inches bigger". When I opened the bag there was a little scrap of fabric that matched the costume and was just perfect for what I needed. After I turned it back in, the mom called me and asked if I had seen a "hair scrunchie" in the bag. I said I hadn't, then she described it as a long strip of fabric matching the costume! Oops!
