no picnic: trying to sleep with both a creative and business mind.

The toilsome process begins with music of course; as I try to fall asleep. Only, the 1940’s record, ‘Two In A Gondola”, sends my thoughts swinging and twirling around the room. And my mind spits out an image… A short, 1950’s, circle skirt resembling the lining commonly used for vintage unmentionables. From there, a waistband, an inventive sleeve that is wearable yet unique, and a feminine neckline… it is… a Two Piece dress. As I clench my eye lids shut, there is no hope for sheep counting just yet, it is time to sketch. When I am done, I must stop myself from then breaking down the garment into pattern pieces, mentally specking it, coming up with a Quicky Cost, or even deciding where the best place to IMPORT materials from to ASSEMBLE the garment and be able to ship it DUTY free…. Oh My Mind. I must go to sleep.
