** MOM, DON'T GO FORWARD OR YOU WILL SPOIL YOUR PRESENT***
Thank you, friends, for the wonderful comments. How a kind word can help you through a tough day!
It seems I must be the one with monkey arms. After scrunching up the length a bit and letting it dry, the sleeves are a bit shorter. Mom's arms are shorter than mine and some work will still need to be done.
I don't really like the clasp that came in the kit and it will wait to see what mom's preferences are.
She had better wear this darn thing (at least in front of me)!
