This jacket and skirt is about four sizes too big. I pinned the skirt today to wear it out and see if I felt it was worth the effort of fixing. I don't really think it is. The jacket would need more attention that it is worth, so I'm going to put it in the "sale" pile and hopefully someone else will wear and enjoy it. Good vintage in larger sizes is difficult to come by, and this is a killer print with the best kind of lapels...
Sure, I could have pinned it so the pattern matched. Well no, really I couldn't because who on earth would do that? At that point, you might as well sew.

There's a "hawk thing" at Fontenelle Forest tomorrow. Translated, that means volunteers from Raptor Recovery Nebraska stand in a room (over tarps) with screeching, flapping, shitting raptors for people to gawk at up close. Well Danny enjoys it, and the volunteers (bless 'em) enjoy Danny, so I'll camp out in the next room with a book while he "talks shop" with his friends. Since we'll be in the area, a trip to the New Life Thrift will be on the agenda because they have patterns for .10 cents. Last time I scored some 60's Vogue patterns, so it is worth stopping. Mr. ETB is on call until Monday morning, but so far (touch wood) it has been an uneventful week.
Have a lovely weekend.
