Some dresses speak easily about what they want to be. They drape this way or that and let me know how we should proceed. Others I stubbornly decide for it. I am not saying one method is better than the other. They are just my realities.
I am working on Jenny's dress. She came with one idea, but during the first fitting, we were playing with the skirt fabric and it did some cool things.... which led us in a different direction than planned. I feel the new way is insanely beautiful and opens up so many opportunities to make a "gown" instead of a "dress".
Then there is Abi's dress. Anyone who knows me, knows I will be very boring until this project is done. I am not saying that I am interesting when I am not working on such a project, I am just extra boring when I am in an obsessive moment like this one.
