Oooh!  I think I'm going to be searching out fonts now-- this is great, and I think it would be perfect for the gifty season coming up.  I'm always so behind, and this looks like it wouldn't take much time, but still be awesome and personal!  Thank you thank you thank you!!

I love the colors and the simple, strong composition.  Perfect for a little boy!

You might want to take a look online and see if you can identify any kind of common thread (haha) to the clothing you want to use, and look at thrift stores to see if you can pick up something that is either perfect on it's own, or could use just a bit of modding, like a shorter hem or a spiffy new dye job, to make it perfect.

Also, if this is something for you and your friends, maybe they have something that would work... or your mom would... or your sister... ask around, you never know.

Good luck with the shoot, I hope it goes well!

Thank you so much bladerunner and aislynn, your suggestions have been a huge help.

My shoulder will be bandaged heavily for the first few weeks, and for eight weeks, I'll be in a shoulder immobilizer, which is basically a mega-sling.  It's got the little strap and pocket for the arm, like a regular sling, but then there's also a big strap that goes around my body to make sure there is no movement at all.  It'll be this, or a variation of it: http://www.hely-weber.com/products/501M.jpg .  Cute, no? [/sarcasm]

Ponchos are a great idea, as are the sleeveless, button front sundresses.  I live in Oklahoma, where it's really hot during the day, but can get a bit chilly at night, so there'll be a lot of use out of both of those.  They're pretty easy to make, but I'll bet I can also find a few decent items at the local vintage shops-- YAY! for the poncho craze of a few years ago!

One shouldered tops look like they'd be really easy, and that they'd work beautifully!  Perfect!

I love the idea of wrap tops, but I'd need to make very sure that once they are closed, they stay closed-- I've had "wardrobe malfunctions"  with wrap tops before, and don't think retying hastily so no one gets an eyeful will be an easy task!  On the other hand, maybe the band from the immobilizer will help me out on that one... just thinking out loud.

I really like the statement that I'll never know what mood I'll be in.  I hold nothing against sweats and hoodies, but the thought of wearing nothing but for months is depressing, and besides... they are hardly appropriate for every occasion.

Finally, thanks for the suggestion about my armoire of doom, which I suppose I REALLY need to fix.  It's an old armoire, packed with approximately six bajillion more items than it was meant to hold.  (Think Jenga, only with clothing) I think I'll start on that this weekend!

I have the same problem (and my kids do too).  Thanks for a great solution!

Hi everyone!

This isn't the standard sort of question, but if anyone can answer it (with sparkle and panache, no less!) it will be you.

I'm about to have shoulder surgery soon to get several bony bits taken out and several metal bits put in, which will leave me quite incompetent for at least 8 weeks.  Thankfully, surgery will be on my left shoulder and I'm right handed, but since I'm going to be in a shoulder immobilizer for that time, I'll still be one handed.

I've already made and purchased some long elastic waist skirts, because they are a lot easier to use than pants with buttons or flies (or, heaven forbid, button flies!) but I'm a bit stuck on what to do for shirts/tops. 

I'm looking for cuteness that won't take either the 1) majority of my day to put on, or 2) the majority of my bank account to acquire.

I'm open to any and all ideas!  Thanks so much in advance!
