Little quality time with BWOF

It really has nothing to do with saving the ozone layer and everything to do with the hour that it takes to drive the 14 miles from my new job to my house.

So, today I rode the Metro bus.

The trip was nice this morning. I took a selection of BWOF's and Marfy 2155 to pin the sleeve in. The bus left right as I got out of my car, but that gave me time to use the ATM to put money on my little bus pass card and talk with my fellow riders. Anyway, it took me an hour to get to work on the bus instead of spending the hour in traffic.
The ride home was worse, it took 2 hours.
To make a long story short, I got to thumb through part of my box of vintage BWOF's that I am "storing" for my dear friend Peggy.
The ladies in my office wear skirts so I am feeling the pressure. I stumbled across this beauty from August 2007, how cute would that be in a subtle stripe!
I never would have come across this without my cross town bus trip.
As for it being worth $6.50, the jury is out.

Ooh so cute Marfy 2155

Love the sleeve, love the collar! Once again, Marfy bliss.

Now, if only I weren't gone 12 hours a day and I had time to finish it.

It just goes to show ya', be careful what you wish for!

I cut about 1" out of the bottom of the "legs" of the sleeve pants:

The armhole seam was reduced to about 3/8 to 1/2 inch which helps it fit my shoulders and arm better.
I also took some better pictures of the sleeve assembly just in case you didn't understand my explanation:

No, I just need to pick out some buttons. It would be nice if I could find some pink plastic to match. I may see what the store has this weekend.

I am working some hellacious hours at work, but it is rewarding. It's mentally challenging and analytical which is right up my alley and I am surrounded by wonderful people. It is exactly what I was looking for and I am exhausted but I love it.
