Stephanie said she like the Vogue pattern better, so I made that one which is for a 34 bust. Close enough and then she can wear layers if it cold out at the parades.
Clearly, it will spectacularly noticeable at a parade, where most people still dress fairly normally. It is meant to button in the front like an actual robe, but it's lycra! So I sewed it shut. If it fits over the dummy with no struggles, it will fit Steph. I also didn't finish any seams or do facings because it's lycra. Come on!
This may be in part because Andrew went to NY on business from Tues-fri so I was forced to amuse myself. Which I did! I watch every episode of Downton Abbey in order! In four days! Yeah, that's healthy right?
I did complete all of this boring hand sewing while watching season 1 on Netflix. Hemmed a skirt, sewed on many missing buttons and replaced the straps on my brown silk dress blah blah blah.
I love loveeee Downton Abbey. Then I watched all of season 2 that has aired so far, which PBS has online. It was awesome. Now I am just sad that the Walking Dead and Downton Abbey are both on Sundays and I have to work! Pooh. This SNL skit cracks me up, trying to sell the show to guys on Spike TV.
