I was so grateful that it warmed up a little bit today. Especially since I took some advice and cut the crotch out of a pair of tights in order to see if I could make that my non-UTI, winter warmth solution, but to no avail. I only got 4 hours into the day before I was in the bathroom at work taking them off. Then I hit my head on the toilet paper holder while I was tying my shoes in the stall, which was hot, and I’m sure a little awkward for anyone else in the restroom.
After I took these photos, I ended up sewing 2 petticoats, one that will likely go straight into the trash and another that will be the pattern for all future petticoats. Thanks to a generous stranger, I have yards and yards of wool sitting in my house, just waiting for a day like this to come along. So that’s what I’ll probably be doing for the next couple of weeks.
