We picked up our pants today and we LOVED them! You have no idea how awesome it was to put them on and say holy shit, these are perfect. Yes, they need some hemming and maybe some alterations if my large ass shrinks even a little. I'm okay with that! They look great and feel fantastic! YAY PANTS!
We also picked up the dress for the chicken. Oh my goddess, it is gorgeous! She loves it, we love it. YAY!
We also - see a trend? - ordered the dress for our oldest chicken. YAY!
Finally, I got an email back from a place that makes/sews/creates corsets. Seems hopeful. We'll see.
