I had a very crazy dream last night last night. I haven’t been sleeping well for a few weeks and my dreams are getting quite bizarre.
I’m making a friend’s dress for her wedding. That’s not a dream, that is reality. It’s the biggest sewing project I’ve ever done. And even though it’s not a full-blown white Cinderella gown (it’s classic and pretty and pink), it’s still a VERY important day for her and she will be photographed a lot in this dress. If it doesn’t look good, people will know that I’M TO BLAME!!! IT WILL FOREVER BE MY FAULT! I’m a bit nervous. I feel a tad like the designers on project runway, and I’m really under the Gunn, I mean gun. At least I have a new serger to help the project go along better. Ahem. That’s not a dream either…um…back to the story.
So, last night I put off cutting it out because I was tired and groggy and I went to bed instead. And all night long I dreamt about wedding dresses. Some person that I don’t even know in real life, just a dream person had a friend (another dream person) who was getting re-married and wanted to wear her original wedding dress, but didn’t want it to look like her original wedding dress. She wanted me to re-make her original gown. We were on a beach for some reason when she brought me her original wedding gown and told me to add 40 YARDS of fabric to the skirt. FORTY YARDS. I kept thinking to myself, this dress is going to be huge, it’s going to be enormous, it’s going to fill the whole room, I’ve never even worked with 40 yards of fabric at one time, will it even fit in my sewing corner? It was completely and totally random.
I woke up quite unrested and determined that I had to cut out the muslin dress today and get started on it so I would feel more confident about my skills for this project. And so, it is cut out and ready to be sewn tomorrow.
And now, let’s hope I don’t dream about 40 yards of fabric tonight. I mean, I love fabric, but not that much all at once!!!
