Minutes before closing time at my fave vintage clothing store last Sunday, I was flipping through the skirt rack, and there was this. Houndstooth. Plain style. My size. Low price. Score!
I imagined the skirt with tights and a sweater.
The sides of the skirt stuck out a little bit, where my hips are not as curvy as ‘Ms. Average’ (whom I’ve never personally met). So, inside, I sewed a line of stitching on the side seams, to straighten things out.
Then steam pressed the altered seam.
It only takes a few minutes, to do this alteration, but makes the difference between a skirt fitting me, and a skirt that sticks out awkwardly on the sides.
And speaking of hound teeth… I’ve just started being a volunteer foster mom for the humane society. Here’s my first little guy, 3 months old, with the cutest biggest ears on any pup ever. He was with me for a month for ‘socialization’. At first, he was completely timid and shy. But by the end of the month, he was a little tyrant, demanding attention, chewing on shoes and belts, digging holes in the yard, and basically running the house. In other words, being a delightful growing pup. He has now been adopted by his ‘forever family’. ❤ ❤ ❤
