Leaky Cauldron tee, purchased 2006
Today is a super special day for me. Not only am I counting down to Deathly Hallows on Friday, but today just happens to be my 17th wedding anniversary! Seventeen amazing years with my soul mate, Eli. For almost two decades, he has loved me, supported me, and most of all, put up with me and all my craziness. Quite obviously, he’s a keeper!
So…The Leaky Cauldron (representing the website, not the pub!)….
This is one of two t-shirts I purchased to wear at Lumos in 2006. My order did not make it to my house before the conference, so the t-shirts never made it to Vegas.
I’ve had a love/hate relationship with this shirt for years. I love the design. I love the color. When I got it, late (grrr!), it was too big for me, huge, in fact.
I immediately reconstructed it to size it down. I don’t usually mess with the length of the tee when I she-shirt them, but this one was so long, that I did. Unfortunately, I messed up and ended up with a shirt that was shorter than I wanted .
So, I tried again. This time, I added insets in the sides and extended the length with some white fabric from another tee. That worked for a while…and then I lost weight, and it was once again too big. SO, I resized it a third (and final!) time, making the side insets a bit smaller and, finally, have the shirt you see here.
This tee has also been retired to my some-day-when-I-can-bear-to-cut-them-up-quilt pile.
