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 got a little overeager for the weather to warm up.
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.
Are you going to get that tan by, say, laying out by the pool at my parents house?
