Author's notes:
"Written for the Suit & Uniform Kink Meme, posted there between August 2 and August 31, 2011. Many, many thanks to the readers there who followed along and cheered me on (y'all know who you are), as well as to siriaeve and pwcorgigirl for beta help for the final posting. The prompt was: Steve is a tailor; Danny needs a custom shirt."

Recs and Reviews

Why we love it: This AU version of Steve and Danny is amongst the most interesting we have ever seen. Steve was still a SEAL and Danny was still a cop and the characterizations are still very recognizable, but it is a whole new thing. Part case fic , part hurt/comfort fic and part relationship this is a long satisfying read that we highly recommend.[1]
Why read: I honestly didn’t think that an AU where Steve is a tailor could work, but it does. It really does. And this fic is just great.[2]
This is a delightful story with Tailor!Steve and Cop!Danny and hijinks and hurt/comfort and sewing and mobsters[3]
