Pretty in what?
So, I'm pulling an Andie. I had a bag of clothes to give away to Goodwill, Paralyzed Vets, whoever called first. Then, I thought about that movie and thought, why can't I pull apart clothes and make them into other things? It's harder than I thought it would be. Not only do I keep scaring the crap out of myself every time I come downstairs, but I keep redraping and redraping the fabric trying to figure out how the fabric speaks to me dahlin'. The scaring myself is because the dressform was in the back room with all of my burlesque costumes. I moved it into my office where my sewing machine is. Every time I come downstairs, I think there's someone there and I jump. So how did Miss Molly Ringwald's character create these uber cool creations? I'm convinced she cheated and had help. I do wish that I had taken a picture of the dress before I ripped every seam out of it and started draping and cutting and pinning. Should be interesting, and at least I am using materials that I was getting rid of anyway. Perhaps by some miracle, I'll create something cool and maybe get the hang of making things without patterns and just brilliant ideas?
