Gotta Love Last Minute Changes

It's 4 days before the wardrobe contest closes, and instead of finishing off my pants, doing the final fixes on other pieces, and either making a simple top to replace my dress (and use a previously made jacket as my topper) or make another simple topper that will go with my dress and everything else, I do something stupid.

I start a fairly complicated jacket. This one, in fact:

I know. I KNOW. I don't have time for this! Especially since I'm losing a day and a half pet sitting for a friend this weekend, and I've still got to take 10 bajillion pictures.

But...I was looking through old entries from previous wardrobe contests, and I just wouldn't be happy if I did something quick and crappy last minute. I wouldn't. And the stupid vest I was planning on whipping up, I doubt I'd ever wear it. So...jacket.

Head? Meet desk.

My old topper? That horrible brown droopy thing? It's in the garbage. Mostly because I hate it, it's ugly, and Peter from Male Pattern Boldness told me to.

11. That sewing project that you started that's been hanging over your head for weeks and fills you with despair every time you think about it -- DUMP IT AND MOVE ON.


  1. Hi, Heather, I just gave you a Beautiful Blogger Award! Check out my post for the details and pass it on :D

  2. ... also that is such a cute jacket. I hope you get it done in time! :)

  3. Oh wow! Thank you very much! I'm swamped at the moment due to the wardrobe contest (due Tuesday! Enter PANIC MODE!), but I will definitely write up that post as soon as I can!
