I made a suit…in black, no less, because sometimes I like to dress up and pretend I’m an adult. Honestly, I made this hoping it’d turn out well enough to wear at some hypothetical job interview. My thinking? Maybe someone will comment on it, and I’ll have a chance to be like, “p.s., I made it”, to which they’d respond, “Rebecca, you’re a goddess among mortals and the messiah of prospective employees.”
Unfortunately, it’s probably too tight for work. JUST KIDDING. I WEAR HOT PANTS TO WORK.
