I tried to use my boyfriend, Chad, as a dress form to make a corset top...it didn't work. So I broke down and measured myself, and made a pattern. It took me a really long time! I chopped up a houndstooth skirt and a tube dress for the outer fabric and the lining, and some threaded some red ribbon in the holes I put in the front and created a corset-style top. I can't wait to get a grommet kit to make the holes look better.

Il y a un monstre dans le lac, et il s'appelle Jean-Claude.
Mon ami le monstre sort du lac quand l'eau est trop chaude.
Le monstre vient au Lac du Bois pour jouer de la guitare.
Il aime bien manger les villageois et les monos bizarres. RAAAARAH!
