      Ha ha! It took about 4 hours all up, so not a long project by any means! It’s a pain though, I can’t post it on the challenge because I don’t have a blog!
      Truthfully, don’t use poplin to line yours, it grabs the clothing underneath irritatingly. Looking forward to seeing yours :)

      Thanks for the warning. I’ll find something slippery.

      You don’t need a blog, btw, just a Wordpress account. That allows you to log in. I can forward you the instructions, if you want. Or you can email me and I’ll post it for you.
