A bridesmaid dashed to a neighboring home looking for sewing supplies, but got one better — a master tailor. A Syrian refugee had only been in Canada for four days. He was thrilled to save the day.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. Panic broke out hours before a wedding in Ontario last Sunday. When the bride's zipper broke, a bridesmaid dashed to a neighboring home looking for sewing supplies, but got one better - a master tailor. Syrian refugee Ibrahim Halil Dudu had only been in Canada for four days, but was a tailor for 28 years in Aleppo. And he was thrilled to save the day, telling CTV, I like to help Canadian people from my heart. It's MORNING EDITION.
