Here's the second version of the Valentine's Day Coat.
This one is also a size 122, then I widened it based on the measurements of a 146. That wasn't wide enough apparently, it's snug across the chest on TLo. Who admittedly is basically shaped like a barrel.
A really melodramatic barrel.
Um. Yep. That's all I have to say about the whole project. Except that I'm extremely glad it's done.
Oooo, but look what came in the mail this week!
A gift from Big In Japan. I should say, a really really AWESOME gift. It's a Tintin file-folder. Because seriously, you can just never have enough things with Tintin on them. Especially office supplies (or at least, this seems to be the basic premise in Japan… and I’m totally willing to go with it).
The real kicker is the day my gift arrived, The Big One had pulled out this book to read for the very first time.
So imagine our surprise when I opened the mail that afternoon and my fabulous folder was in it!
I am not giving it to The Big One. I am not that nice.
Next time: What to do with 100 extra sewing patterns.
No. I'm asking. What to do with 100 extra sewing patterns?? I cleaned out my pattern boxes. It was... disturbing. I'll tell you more about it when I've sufficiently recovered from the trauma.
