screw the wool tunic - when you don't know what to do...

screw the wool tunic
I've got bigger fish to fry.

I made the same mistake with Wolfie's wedding tunic.

Dammit, if I wasn't trying to make the shoulder measurement fit, none of this would have happened. [deep breath] But it's fixable.

I just ripped two of the stupidly small side panels off; I'll rip the others tomorrow and rip out the seam finishing. Then I'll cut larger panels, at an angle like my smock, out of muslin and baste those in to see how they hang. If it looks all right, I'll cut out of the linen. I don't have enough to fuck around with.

Maybe I'll just do the one side and pin them in now... it won't take long...

Gah, I'm aggravated.

Know where you're coming from - kit angst has descended in the house prior to the major show we've got on Saturday. Much wailing and gnashing of teeth, etc.

When is the wedding? Can't be long now if you've just done the bridal shower thing (sounds like a good idea; but the good ideas (like screen doors and bridal showers) never seem to make it over here from the US).

30 days. The error is totally fixable, but we have an event this weekend and I am utterly unprepared. To top it all off, I lose at least a couple of hours this afternoon, because I have to drive some sausages from my butcher down to my duchess -- we're having them for dinner tomorrow night and I can't guarantee that I'll be onsite by dinnertime.

I'm just angry that I made such an elementary mistake. When I laid his tunic out on the table, I could tell by looking at it that it would never fit him. I must have been smoking a particularly high grade of crack.
