So, listen, I'm very hard to be friends with. I'm demanding, pushy, selfish, obsessive, jealous, and very blunt. I'll call you on your bullshit and I cannot tolerate lying because I have a lot of trust issues so if you lie I obviously cannot trust you. Having people in the past call me things like "psychotic" and "sociopathic" and "insane" has made it hard for me to connect to people. I can't. I just can't. I don't let people close. Not really. I told Ally there was a 12 stage process to being allowed to be my facebook friend and it's true. I just don't let people in.
Which is just fine because the person who this post is dedicated to is very tenacious. She has a tendency to inch her way in regardless of your personal barriers. I think that is one of my favorite things about her. She has gumption.
I bring to you, dear friends, the Megan Mae dress.
|Dress: Handmade/Me, Jacket: DIY/Me, Chucks: Journeys|
The problem with this dress is that I cannot remember why I picked this fabric. The other problem with this dress is that I picked it long before Megan and I became close friends. I bought it the same weekend I got the fabric for my Ally dress. I'm pretty sure the thought in my head was, "this doesn't so much remind me of the person as I think it's something they'd pick for me". It's funny how just a little bit of knowledge can change things, though. Now that we know each other better, I know that Megan wouldn't pick this for me. She'd either pick something Mori style or she'd pick stars because she knows that stars are my favorite thing. And if I REALLY wanted to do a dress dedicated to her, I'd make a bee dress. Which I need. I need a bee dress, guys.
For example, last week she sent me a little blue star necklace that is perfect.
But I already had the fabric and no matter how I tried I could not stop thinking of it as the Megan dress so here it is. The pattern is not my usual Lisette dress because Megan's favorite dress of mine is not a Lisette. It's this pattern. (My circus dress.) So I used the out of character fabric and made the Megan dress in that pattern. We also had a long chat last week about how I can toughen up my outfit posts. I'm still working on it, but I have this inner badass that is dying to get out and Megan was giving me tips on how to pose. I hope that I look good and not just angry. ^_~
I guess in style and pose this is a good Megan post, but I still feel bad about the fabric. What do you think of my new dress, guys? I was pretty excited about the yoke- I've never done one of those before. I can't wait to use the pattern again (but it needs to be shorter).
I never thought I'd have best friends again. And now I have two. And one of them (Megan) draws pictures of me. It's a very heart warming thing.
She nailed it, right? ^_~ Until next time, guys. Have a beautiful weekend.
