The fabric arrived this morning [squeeeee] and the green taffeta is perfect, absolutely luscious. Unfortunately, the black taffeta for the skirt is not what I ordered. The one I wanted is this:
But I got plain smooth black. Nice, but not special enough. So I sent a message, and they’ve asked me to send it back for a swap. It turns out that the return address isn’t too far from here, so the missus says she’ll drop it back tomorrow, saving postage and delays.
Yum yum yum. I plan to get the jacket cut out tomorrow, I’m itching to crack on with this project!
