Emphasis on the “tent”:
The problem with sewing a muumuu in February is that you can’t really justify its voluminousness until the weather is hot. So until then, I have the world’s roomiest jumper.
I do like how it turned out; I like muumuus. (Nothing better has been invented for summer wear. Those old ladies knew.) I just didn’t have the heart to model it as it should be worn, with my cadaver-pale arms and legs sticking out of it.
The plaid is very nice, though–the colors of dry grass and evening light on the foothills in August. It will look nice with a tan.
