Marines Keep Me Up All Night

Yesterday I got this text from my brother:

Hey, are you up for any last-minute alterations?

 

Soon after:

Did I tell you that you’re my most favoritest older sister?

 

I’m his only older sister. =0)

Ah, brothers. This particular one, AW, is in the reserves, and it turns out their annual¬†Marine Corps Ball is today. His dress blues coat was much too small, and he wanted me to alter it. I had worked on it last year, but wasn’t able to make it much bigger due to a need for more red trim to sew across the bottom. This time he came prepared; he brought an extra (also non-fitting) coat to use for “parts.” It was a funny way to go about it, but it did the trick. There’s a waiting list, and the uniforms are quite expensive, so at least he has me!
