But… I already found him and you can’t have him. So, tough luck.
I mean, what are the chances of finding a guy who even thinks to give you this magical beast for your birthday?
Yeah, that’s right. All MINE.

The pattern is Vogue 8747, which incidentally I somehow liked enough in my subconscious to buy two copies of (on separate occasions). And I do like it rather a lot – it’s a good fit right out of the envelope. The only slight change I made was shortening the sleeves fairly significantly (maybe 1-2 inches?). Other than that, went swimmingly.
I can’t even adequately explain the difference. It’s like upgrading from the beat up 10 year old car you got when you were 19 to a brand new Lexus. I may still have a 10-year-old Honda Civic, but my sewing machine is totally a Lexus. I’ve had a hard time tearing myself away to do much of anything else all week long
