I’m not much of a pink person.
I leave pink to my cousin Jennifer, who looks smashing in pink.
But for some reason I’m in a mood to put together something PINK for Burning Man (2021, of course).
[Let’s hope there IS a Burning Man 2021 and that the coronavirus doesn’t completely destroy the finances of the Burning Man organization.]
I’ve been looking at transparent pink dresses:
I’m specifically drawn to longer lines and bright colors.
I’m excited by the playfulness of each dress and I WISH THEY MADE THEM IN MY SIZE.
Perhaps I might have to take up sewing clothes again, in order to make what I really want and custom fit it to my exact dimensions.
I’ve never been one for making my own clothes.
I just didn’t have the patience to complete a clothing project, which is ironic since I’ve finished about fifty quilts.
What you’ve got to understand is that the amount of time it takes to pick out a pattern, select fabric, cut out the pattern, and sew is often so laborious that it’s much more cost effective to just BUY the dress already made.
A few years ago, I bought a pattern for a nightgown that I loved.
I have yet to crack open the pattern and sew.
So my track record of buying and sewing my own clothes makes me feel like it would be a gigantic waste of time (and money).
Honestly, it’s much easier and better for me to just lose weight so I can fit into standard sizes.
I mean, what does it say about me that I’d rather LOSE WEIGHT than sew clothes?
Pretty telling, huh?
