So much inspiration so little time

When I made the Atessa dress, I ended up with a lot of material left over.

Don’t know why.  The material was wider than I thought? Anyway, there it languishes in my stash.

I didn’t know what I would do with it.  Then I saw this dress at the Met.

I know I have said this before but I need to retire!  I need more time to sew up and knit up my ideas and I need more places to wear these things!  I need more weekends like CoCo and the Dickens Festival where I can wear MULTIPLE ensembles!  I keep piling up more and more outfits and I can’t possibly wear them all in one year!  And yet telling myself to stop is not going to happen. Anyone else feel my pain?
