    Good sewing skills required

    My missus and I are not particularly good at sewing. I can only do buttons and even then they're hoary looking. Are there any accomplished seamstresses or ex infanteers out there who'd be prepared to take on a job for me please?

    I have some old South African Police uniform items (trou + winter jacket) that require buttons and two holes to be fixed:

    The pants will require 5 buttons on the fly, there is no way I'd be able to find camouflage buttons so would substitute with brown. I've no idea what's required to close the holes in the legs but imagine that they may require patching which is fine, provided that the patch material is sewn inside, not outside.

    The jacket just requires buttons - 6 on the front (5 on the opening and 1 at the collar). 4 for the pockets and 1 each on the cuff so 12 in total. The items are quite important to me so quality workmanship is paramount.

    Happy to cover costs of materials, postage and of course, your time. Items haven't been worn since the late 80's.
