Have you ever experienced project planning euphoria?
I have a whole bundle of fabric and notions with which to attempt to sew a couple bras, and I have all the good feelings. These are going to be so easy and quick to make! They will not have any of those issues that drive me crazy on my other bras! I can get the fit exactly right!
These feelings generally last till you snap your last needle in a denim seam, or you try on your project and it looks unimaginably horrible.
I’m trying to prevent the letdown by reminding myself that it might take a couple versions till I get something I like. I’ll need to refine my technique. I’ll have sloppy parts. it will take 10 times longer than I think. It may never fit like the thing I'm imagining.
In spite of this reality I keep forcing into my mind, the fantasy completed project still lives on in my head. I can't wait to make it!
