Happy Valentine's Day.

Do you remember that guy who ate an entire plane over a span of 40 years for the Guinness Book of World Records? I was reminded of him this morning when I looked at my everything bagel and noticed a tiny piece of the purple sparkly sheer fabric currently being used on a dress stuck to the cream cheese. This fabric is everywhere in my house. It's in the bathroom, it's in my bedroom, it's in the kitchen. Once I saw Sammy track some of it onto my bed. And now I have to think that I've probably inadvertently eaten enough of this awful stuff in a week to create a second dress.


Observe.

Below are some photos of said dress. This dress has been a pretty painless project with a couple small exceptions. First, the turnaround time requested was just stupid short. I got this project on 2/5 and need to drop it off tomorrow, 2/14. Uncool. Second, I did the sleeves the wrong color, to my nauseated surprise. Just read the instructions wrong, woopsies! So I got to do those twice in record speed. On the bright side, at least I realized this before I attached them to the dress and sent it on. That could have been super worse. I could have spilled coffee or bleach on it. I could have accidentally set it on fire. I could have dropped it into a shredder. But I didn't.


I do not posess a dress form large enough for the recipient of this dress, so this is perhaps a little misleading. It more than likely will not look like a baggy mess. Mess, sure, but baggy, not.


Since it's due tomorrow and still currently in...eight pieces, I suppose I'll get going.
