It is Nutcracker season again. When dancing daughters move on so do the dancing Dads. A new Mr. Clara is making his dancing debut and new jacket is required. He has a lovely scarlet Christmas velvet jacket.
Lady Faye, the dress form, is making a shabby show since the jacket is a size 48 and she is not.
Mr. Clara's fitting was a success as he said he would be able to his big scene, the fake foot trip with an armload of packages, with ease.
Here it is flat on the ground. I should have taken a close up of the button. It was an ugly blue one from my Grandma's stash painted gold with Christmas magic.
