This is kind of pretty, right? A very cute little jacket. But the next picture down has convinced me that I need to learn to sew.
Oh, sweet mother of stitching! They just don’t make a thing like that anymore. Not even my house is this structurally sound. And still cute, even on the inside!
Because I have no intention of spending $300-$1500 on every article of clothing I own…I’m going to have to learn to Do It Myself.
…Luc had the same look on his face about the inside of this jacket that I get when he is showing me types of wood. It’s a look that says, “This interests me because you like it, but I have no idea what you are talking about.”
So we’ll try it out and see how much skill I can learn. Even if it turns out to be out of my grasp, I will still enjoy the fact that human hands can make such useful, sturdy, pretty, fanciful things. It’s a little bit miraculous.
