They are finally done. What a race to get them done; to match the dresses my girls wore for a friend’s wedding last Saturday. The second one was completed literally half an hour before we left for the wedding (about 30 minutes drive away from where we live).
And… They only wore the boleros for another half hour... The sun came out! All that effort to get them done in time! Never mind. Winter approaches…
