Process

Just when I'd decided not to listen to my ideas anymore (they make me crazy), I went to the fabric store yesterday. Fell in love with two fabrics. One silk, one lace. Both a blush color. Didn't buy either. Came home, opened file with images of interest for Project #2 (cocktail dress for Intermediate Industry Sewing class). Wracked brain about how I could use these two fabrics together, in a way that would end up just right. Worried that my sewing skills were not adequate enough for the ideas I have. Worried that my ideas were too ambitious and would take too long leaving me behind (as usual). Worried that ideas were not exactly cocktail dress like but more summer wedding guest-ish. Decided I didn't care. Searched internet for images. Found one that's just what I've been thinking. Fell in love. Kept fingers crossed until class.
