i don't know how i did it - i went to stand up, and my ankle wouldn't support me - so it wobbled a ton, really fast, and then i fell over.

<sigh>

old age........ but hey, i can still knit (working on a sock at the moment... though it won't fit over the brace, I suppose_

ooohhhh looks good!

I would reccomend changing this though:
Quote
Would you like clothes made for you?
   if so:
   shirt size?
   skirt size?
   trouser size?
   shoe size?
   bra size?

to the following- sizes are just far to arbitrary, especially with it being secret!

Would you like clothes made for you?
   if so:
   bust measurement?
   waist measurement?
   hip measurement?
   height?
   shoe size?
   bra size?

And I'll be sending in my info shortly Smiley
