Okay the shawl is not turning out good. I've tried three different patterns and still....not good. Correction...it's looking like crap. I'm calling Vanna now!
The $25.00 dress will cost $40.00 to alter. Massive amounts of fabric need to be removed from the chest area. :) The shoulders need to be taken up and excessive amounts of fabric under the armpits removed. A team of professionals are working on it as we speak....:) Challenger got off the ground with less help :)
I found shoes that match the dress perfectly. We recently had a DSW store built 40 minutes away from us. OMG I hate shopping for shoes but I could learn to like it at that store :) They had a pair of Mootsie's Tootsies that matched perfectly. They had a lot of hooker shoes too......yeah I tried them on :) The sales lady also showed me things I can stick on to the shoes so I don't bust my rump.
Off to the good yarn shop to see if I can find something else to work with...the clocks ticking. If I'm not binding off the stitches as we are giving the car to the valet parker, I'll be happy.
