a I am being creative
b It costs less than buying it from a shop ready made
c It will be unique and tailormade to fit me perfectly
I then take my purchases home and put them in the corner of my wardrobe, planning to make the said garment very very soon.
Hey, sometimes I even cut them out. Then I put them back in the wardrobe for stage two.
So this weekend, I took out a dress that I had cut out early summer and decided bite the bullet and commit myself. My daughter and partner didn't like the fabric, (to be honest, I didn't even like the fabric anymore) but I had made the commitment and didn't want to lose my momentum.
Three hours later, when I tried (ahem, perhaps squeezed) into the dress I looked into the mirror and hated it. I hated the colour, hated the style on me, hated the time I had wasted on it. I expected to have acheived a new garment to add to my wardrobe but it was not to be.
This morning, I have sorted out more fabric and I have a plan. I am about to eat dinner and promised myself I will make a quick top later this evening. If it comes out good I will post a pic tomorrow.
