adventures in costuming
You know there is nothing like looking at pics of previous Costume Colleges to get one to want to start sewing again... :>

I'm progressing, behind thanks to an unfriendly headache yeterday. I think I can get the black stripe jacket finished for RCHS wear tonight, although sans trimmings. Anyway, that is my goal.

No progress on the Pearl, which I will regret later... still my tiara is still pretty. :>

Maybe we should have a "Tiara Sunday"? Or add it to the "Sunday Undies".
Looking at previous photos does that to me also, but sometimes it intimidates me, like, how can I ever measure up to that?
I think it's easier to look at antique prints or photos and get inspired, then it's not a competition for me.
Um. No, I'm not insecure.

Well there is a pretty, pretty, princess party on Friday I hear...

Yeah, I've had to learn that lesson the hard way, not to compare my work with others. It only leads to frustration and disappointment. If you do your best, don't be afraid to stretch yourself a bit and dream a lot it's fun, otherwise it's a drag.

I was thinking more of the good times and how much fun I'm going to have in my new frocks. You know that it really is worth the effort of finishing them even though I'm tired. *sigh* It's always the finishing that trips me up. :P

Hehe! I was looking at last years pics too and reminiscing about all the fun and getting excited for more fun!
