My dad gave us all pocket watches for Christmas. *I* already have a perfectly lovely dirndl pattern, which I was planning to make more of… I can easily add a watch pocket.
But the boy! The boy LOVES his watch… and thus he wants a vest with a watch pocket. I get to make something cool for the 15yo! -squee-
(15yo boys are *not* allowed to put their pocketwatches into their pants pockets).
Oh, this is my “Mozart and Tchaikovsky are my favorite artists” “I think I’ll listen to my music and assemble legos on Christmas afternoon” child. Vests? Yeah, I can see him rocking the vest. Without irony.
..I figured out what the insanity was over Christmas, by the bye… I was just stressed. Too long, too hard running in work mode. Midway through an entirely unnecessary Christmas nap, I let some of it go… and I can already feel the creativity and curiosity peeking through the fog. :D..
