So you know I’m pretty cool, right? I mean, of my siblings I’ve definitely the coolest and if asked, I’d say generally people will grudgingly admit that I do not act like a mature, reliable adult. That’s really code for cool. I know.
Part of what makes me so fabulous is my constant up to the minute knowledge of pop culture and what is going on up in here.For Shizzle sticks.
This morning I finished working on Mccalls 6758. It’s OOP, but I’ll probably bring it back by popular demand with my trend setting skills, right? Yup. I only use my powers for good, thankfully. I was headed out to the downtown area to take pictures in the same classy pose as the cover model:
Yeah, it’s a great pose for helping someone understand the pattern and design features, right? Nix that. I’m going to to multi-task. Some local skater kids were playing Pokemon Go and I decided to join them. They were very helpful- they could see immediately what an asset I was to their training team.
So I took their advice and headed out to a field they said was very popular with the rarer beasts and set out to ‘Catch ’em all!’ as the hip say.
Now, about this dress- it has 3 seams up the front and it has a nice little nip to the waist- not truly fitted- I still managed to skip the back zip, but comfortably fitted. I used a painted homespun iridescent cotton I got on a Mary Jo’s trip- I thought this dress had a nice almost military shape to it and the green worked for my vision.
Oh, I think I hear one now- wait- crap! I lost him?!
This collar is a puzzle to me- it lays on sort of a convex angle. I can’t see anyone elses well enough to see if I’m just weird. I tried it several ways and just ended up going convex. IS that a word?
Well, I’m happier with my dress that I am with my new hobby. The kids said I should let them hold my phone, because the pokemon are frightened of the cellular waves and that my net would catch more. So far I’ve seen 3 squirrels. I may never level up.
Being an arbiter of style and trend is hard and hungry work, my people.
