I have to be honest, its not going so well. I managed, after several hours, to get the pattern cut out.
I'm talking the TISSUE PAPER pattern, not anything to do with actual fabric.
By the time I was done that, I was in pain so bad I was trembling.
I didn't sleep last night, finally managing to get a few hours this afternoon.
I want so badly to honour my daughter with this dress...I just truly don't know if I can physically manage it.
Wolf asked why I would attempt such a thing when I have RSD. Perhaps its because I have RSD. I want to do something special, that my beautiful daughter deserves, as her mother, RSD be damned. If I was able to find a beautiful dress for her, I would go that route...but I can't. She's 11, and in women's sizes, only an inch shorter than I. Any dress I could find for her was far, far too mature. Any pretty party gowns in the girls/teens ran out before we found her size.
Sewing seemed the only option...I just don't know if I can.
I'm praying that I'm able to honour my daughter with this, that God will give me the strength to get through this.
