I don’t think I want to make the coat dress anymore. I’m having doubts about it which means I really just shouldn’t. I don’t know what to do with the fabric I bought for the coat.

Lesson: Buy fabric AFTER doing the pattern alterations. Then, and only then, I’ll be sure I like the way the garment will look on me.

I’m bummed by this realization. I really wanted to make this coat dress. But I also know myself and in projecting myself into the future, I’m guessing I’d start this and never finish it. And I like finishing thing!

Now I feel like I need to go to garment making support group. Hi, my name is Leila. (You: Hi Leila) It’s been 7 days since I finished the pattern alterations and I don’t think I’m into this garment. (You: Glad to have you) I just don’t know if it’s the design, the fugly fabric I used for the muslin, or the hours of work needed to make this thing. Sigh.
