Hip at the bone: 33"
Hip at the fullest part: 36"
I'm smiling because I like the smile detector. It always takes the best pictures. I also wanted to show off my sweet new shoes. Ryan picked them out for me. I overlooked them because PINK. I don't want pink shoes. But they are super comfy and look mostly white when they are on my feet.
Saucony Kinvara. Totally badass shoes. The guy making my training program suggested some awful shoes. He said the Kinvaras are for advanced runners, which I am most certainly not. He also forgets that my shoes that are not flip flops are Vibrams. I'm used to the light weight and not pillowy shoes. These were a good choice for me. I ran 5 miles on Monday in them.
And something sewing related: I started making a pair of slippers last night. I'm seriously disappointed in the instructions. Maybe it's just me, but the photos are not helpful. Protip: Don't photo black and white shoes for use in your picture instructions. I can't see SHIT. There are also some errors on the pattern pieces themselves. Like it says Cut 2 of something you really need 4 of. You use the same pattern piece for 2 different pieces. I cut 2 and was really confused. The pictures were not helpful because the second piece looked really short against the black background. I thought that for sure I was supposed to cut along the line on that pattern piece. I wasn't. I did buy that last yard of this Michael Miller houndstooth fabric from fabric.com. It ended up being only 27." And then fabric.com got more in stock. I'll have to see how my budget shakes out for November to see if I can buy more of it.
Have a good one,
