getting started on toileing
Finally feeling better today - yeah!

So my jacket toile has been cut out and pinned together. I'm off to get out Bette the sewing machine to whip it up and do a fitting.

As lame as it sounds if this jacket doesn't play nice I'm going to ditch the project. I'm just not motivated. I'm only working on it at this point because I know I'll super happy on Saturday if I have a new something to wear. But honestly there are about 4 projects I'd rather be working on, including my unfinished bonnet commission and wearing the Rohan again isn't the worst thing in the world. I love that dress!

It will make me feel like a slug, not following through on now two Ren outfits but I'm feeling too blah and overwhelmed to be stressed out by a jacket. Life is just too short.

So you're not surprised...I ditched re-doing my periwinkle dress. It was un-saveable. My new one is green and has big sleeves...its lighter than your rohan and has red in it to0, so not the same. Like I said, I just didn't want you to be surprised if we look kind of similar-ish, I'm not copying you I promise! *sheepish grin*

No worries, the jacket is going pretty well so far... I can't wait to see your new frock!

You are exactly right. Life if much too short to get stressed about something that we are supposed to enjoy.

Yes, life is absolutly too short to be sda about unfinished costumes. I always feel sad about not wearing something new to an event, but then again, it's kind of sad that so many of my outfits get worn only once or twice.

i'm sure your jacket toile will work out fine, but if not - your Rohan dress is gorgeous and deserves some more love =)

Thanks! Yeah I don't think the Rohan can get too much love! :>
