Yup. I’m doing it. 1 week. 2 fabrics. And a lot of effort. My goal is to, by next Tuesday, have made a white shift dress.
It’s a big….no HUGE step. I’m 15 years old with hardly any experience and no help from teachers or professionals. But I will just have to see how it turns out. The dress. That I AM MAKING!
So, on the outside to my mum and brother (the only people who know), I’m just sitting, a neutral expression on my face as I tack, then now and again sighing as I turn the fabric. On the inside though, i’m buzzing, because i’m making a dress, a dress I can wear, and if this goes ok, I can move onto bigger better things. LOL!
Also, their is a reason I’ve only told my mum and brother: they’re the only ones who have seen me. Telling my friends is kind of scary, if they expect me to make this fabulous dress, and I fail, then i’ll feel a bit embarrassed. I don’t want to mess up, then go back to school to hear, “how’s the dress going?” and me having to pretend I wasn’t a failure, and blame the fabric, “i’m just waiting for some new fabric”- i’m actually wait just gonna say this until you forget and stop asking.
That’s all for now, much more to come
