I have good news and bad news.
The good news is, I needed something red to wear for a party (the invite demanded it), and I had just the thing!
Of course it needed a little work, but I saw great potential in this frock!
First, I made a some snips!
Then, I took in the sides a bit.
I cut off the excess material with my pinking shears, then got to closing up that top raw edge.
I didn’t sew the whole top up right away though! I left just enough room to feed a bit of elastic through!
With the elastic in place, I stitched the casing closed and was ready to celebrate with friends!
Dan was there too!
Fun times were had…
…and I was feeling quite caliente in my red!
I even met a new friend!
Now for the bad news.
Later that night, Dan and I had a fight.
Now we’re no longer together. And it sucks.
I don’t get close to many people, but I let myself get close to Dan. I don’t like a lot of people, but I liked him. I was happy. I was excited about our relationship. Finally! After all the failed romances I had found someone I wanted to share a life with! Finally I had met someone who had just the right combination of humor, wanderlust, kindness, and passion for life I had always wanted. I didn’t have to date anymore! I was done!
If you’re playing at-home version of Jillian’s Failed Love Life(tm), this is my third failed relationship since I began this blog. Ugh.
Right now, I’m feeling completely lousy. :/ I’ve started my new job – which I love – but it’s hard trying to be happy and friendly to my awesome new coworkers when I feel so eaten up inside. How is that someone who can see the potential in even the cruddiest & most misshapen of clothes can’t convince someone she loves to see their potential together?
