I do not have even half the time I need to do everything I want to do. And yet here I am buying sewing patterns. Because I am going to sew when? Maybe I can get a monkey and teach it to do some of my stuff so I don’t have too? A good, flattering skirt pattern that will work in multiple fabric weights will be endlessly useful in our house and, because I’ve been thinking about it for far too long, I am determined to make the Butterick 4790. Also contemplating buying a crinoline to wear under all my full skirted dresses. Is that ridiculous?
