Well…first shoot is done.  We finished over an hour ago.  It didn’t take long.  I feel really . . . really . . .down, though, and I’ve been trying to figure out why.  Though the fabric is gorgeous, the dress looks almost nothing like it’s supposed to.  You know what I’m gonna do?  I’m going to call my pattern maker.  She’ll know why.  You know what else?  I just thought this:  I’m going to pin the gathers on that dress, because that was one of the main problems.  The gathers seemed non-existent.  I have another model coming in a bit, for a different dress.  I’m going to have her model this one, too.     Not sure how that’s gonna work because the dress was made for the other model.  I’ll see if I can pin it on her and I’ll ask her to wear heals.  I’ll text her now.

(15 minutes later)

Pinning didn’t work.  I tried ironing in the gathers.  Those of you who sew know that didn’t work.  My head feels so heavy and I just want to go to sleep, but I can’t because I have another shoot in a bit. I’m done for today.  See you in a few days maybe.

  1. Hmmm…It’s all a process. What’s really beneficial is documenting the growth of your business and the progress you’re making!
