13th October 2011: Discussions Me and my mum have spent a good portion of the evening discussing how best to go about this dress. I want to use a base of a dress I already have and cover it in blue muslin that I found, but my mum reckons I'm making a mountain out of a mole hill and that I should just make a dress from scratch. But the material is too thin to do that, so we're seeing what we can do. I'm going out shopping for the material on Friday, and my mum unstitched a sash on the dress that I didn't need anymore, so I feel like we've made a real start on things. Just need to work out how much material I need. It's stressing me out a little, especially only having two weeks to do it all, but I'm hoping I'll get it finished in time.
