    Haha, it is appropriate, but the color version is good too.

    Thanks estitchy!


    Didn't get the second part, but just asked because of your nickname, I thought it wasn't logical for a girl. :) No offense intended or disrespect or something like that.

    betelgeuse: same here, I just get very moderately irritated/amused when people persist in assuming anyone who has a husband must be female. :)

    /me continues to chit-chat while trying to work up the confidence to post a morning coat/stroller fit

    I am taking it upon myself to enter Kappelan and Licious since they posted fits which work for this challenge: Kappelan [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Licious [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I think that this challenge has brought out some really solid fits from everyone. Great idea.

    Thank you very much! All entries can now be seen on page one. The poll will start sometime Saturday morning. I'm a few hours ahead in England, so for all you Yanks here it should be set up ready and waiting for when you're having your breakfast (pancakes with maple syrup or something, I suppose).

    Agreed, some very strong fits in here today. This one is going to be tricky.

    Great. Please try to leave it open until Sunday night if you don't mind so we can get plenty of votes :)

    I've had a look at the poll function, just to acquaint myself with how it works, and it says the poll can either run indefinitely, or expire at midnight GMT on a certain date. If I set it to Sunday, midnight for me would be 4pm for Sugarbutch, who is in San Francisco, not giving him as much time to vote, and just a little bit more for people east of him. I'll set it to expire at midnight GMT on Monday, so folks in the USA actually have until late Monday afternoon to vote. Alternatively, if anyone can suggest a way in which I can alter the poll expiry time, instead of just the date, then please do.

    Betelgeuse, you were 20% right. I'm surprised at the variety of looks that are on display given the limits on the challenge, and there isn't a single one I don't like.
