Thanks to the help and encouragement of my two best gal pals and the mechanical ability of my husband, Dancing Miranda now looks enough like me to serve as more than a place to stack hats.

Others have raved over the Fabulous Fit package but I wasn't very happy with it. It's overpriced and I didn't use most of the pads. I couldn't even see how some of them could be used. The covers are very nice, though, and what pads I did use should hold their shape better than batting or something similar.

I've quit fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.

It's just fabric; we can out-think it.

It takes a lot of hit and miss to get her right. Congratulations!
