Rule #32: Enjoy the little things.
For the most part I can get everything I need in Germany and I don't miss shopping in the US at all. But for goodness sake... why does contact solution cost SO MUCH in Germany? Even at the commissary! Yeah for Target!
Today's pants are, surprise surprise, Vogue 1051 in brown twill. This post could have also been called "Those pesky seam allowances." This pair of pants almost didn't make it. I seriously thought I had gained weight when I put these on and they didn't fit! But I couldn't figure out why my other pairs still fit just fine... Turns out I had been using a 3/8" seam allowances on all my previous pairs instead of the 5/8" the directions said. This time around when I followed the directions they were too small! I had to pick out as many leg seams as I could to make them wearable. It worked, but I don't think I'll be making that mistake again any time soon! I finished these just in time for them to make it on this trip with me.
