Quick fix

This took no more than 5 minutes.

I just got some thin elastic (that part took days), threaded it through the bottom edge of the shrug, secured at the armpits, and voilĂ !

That’s another sundress, by the way – sleeveless and with a deep-V in the front – so the shrug could be conceivably paired with it.

Closing thought – there’s no doubt that you have a more intimate knowledge of my wardrobe than my own mother.

    nice! i’m happy to see this because i suspect i’m going to have a similar problem with my cotton shrug that i’m working on now.

    did you order the elastic online or buy it in a store?

    I just found your blog, and I love it! I often refer to myself as Grumpy McGrumpster, so I can certainly relate. Also, I read your Nordstrom’s nightmare, and was very impressed with the letter you got in response! You go with your grumpy self. Love the shrug, and I’ll keep reading!

    It’s pretty amazing, the things we out here in blogland know about each other that our mothers don’t! Must be a blog entry in there somewhere…

    MUCH better!

    See, now, I wouldn’t even begin to know how to search for such an elastic. I mean do you type in “elastic?” Is it a special kind? Does it have a certain name?

    All these questions would swirl in my head until, finally, I just gave up. Or, asked you. ;-)

    See, this is why YOU’re the Neuroscientist. Hehehe.
