I made this dress! Finishing a project always peps me up. You may recognize the fabric from a previous creation.
It's astonishing that I'm doing so decently at improvising garments that correspond to my physical form, because my sense of spatial relationships is miserable. For example, I am a notoriously bad driver. Actually, I'm okay at the driving part, even though I go a tad too fast, but parking is the bane of my existence. Not in a regular way, but in the kind of way where the back of my car looks like Superman punched it and I've messed up my neighbor's side panel. It's pretty embarrassing, not to mention expensive. I do try to be careful and not destroy everything around me, but those efforts don't prevent me from knocking into curbs. I'm also navigationally hopeless.
So, yeah, knowing where things are =/= my area of expertise. I'm quite good at basic geometry and stuff like that, but the 3D world is impossible, especially in reverse. And yet, I think this dress is okay!
