If you like to sew, it's worth spending a few minutes looking at Kathleen's archives - the Marie Therese costume is just gorgeous. And the Bo-Peep costume makes ME want to play dress up! And the little skirts and tops, all modeled by her beautiful daughter - if you have a toddler in your life, it really is worth a look.
The best part for me (since I don't have a toddler anymore) is, that Kathleen has started doing a little bit of sewing for adults. And, she's having giveaways - like this lovely spring coat -The Conservatory Overcoat GIVEAWAY!!!!. I am certain that I need this coat, and I will give you three reasons why.
First, I am always cold - always. The only time I am truly warm is in the summer, when I first get into a parked car, and then some party pooper insists on turning on the air conditioner and ruining it. Except Melissa. Melissa just opens a window and lets me enjoy the warm air for a little longer! :)
Second, I lack any fashion sense whatsoever. Really! I was either born without one OR some nefarious person surgically amputated mine shortly after birth, because I can't put an outfit together to save my life. That's why this coat is PERFECT - it would simply cover my poor fashion choices and make me look stylish in spite of them!
Third, I am short. Really short. As such, I am at constant risk of being stepped on by the tall people around me. How is this pertinent, you ask? Well, notice the color of the coat in question - it's RED! What color in the spectrum do humans see first? I'm pretty sure red's up there, so this coat will make me safer. I'll be hard to miss, in my adorable red coat!
So, check out the fabulousness that is Grosgrain, but don't go winning my coat! :)
