all i need are buttons
Living just off Fabric Row in Philly is convenient, yes, but frustrating too--all the stores close at 5pm! Wednesdays they stay open later, but I have plans. This might have to wait until the weekend for its conclusion.
I put it on, and I like it a lot--but the piece is intended for my mother, a woman more petite than I. Once it's all done I'll try to model it, but I'm not sure how that's going to look, and I don't want anyone to be dismayed at an ill-fitting piece when it's because I'm too large for the size I made! I'm close to that size, so it's not awful, but just putting it on briefly tonight showed me that it came out really great--the Wool of the Andes feels sturdy enough, the piece hits just above my hips (a perfect length for this jacket, to my mind), and the half circles overlap just enough. All my previous concern is gone! Happiness.
