Everyone probably knows someone like me: when it comes to anything I have to spend money on, I am exceptionally picky. I'll go to a clothing or shoe store, determined to buy something. I'll angst over any one given item, spend twenty minutes arguing all its good points, but that ONE TINY FLAW will prevent me from buying it. I'll go home empty handed.
As you probably guessed, there is fine print in the Geneva convention stating that it's cruel and unusual punishment for me to drag anyone out shopping with me.
A few years ago I had some truly delightful dusters. I got them on clearance at a department store, bought several colors, and have long since worn through the one I wore the most. It was perfect - simple, slim, lots of extra fabric to wrap around myself instead of gaping open and leaving you out in the cold. The worst part is, it was my absolutely essential Basic Black, and I've been lost without it.
If anyone can direct a despondent duster-lover to a viable pattern, I would be simply delighted. Thanks in advance!
