Slump Hump

I've been in a bit of a creativity slump.  This happens every now and then and always passes. I find the best thing to do is change projects, something new that is inspiring and gives you that costuming thrill, something that gets the creative juices flowing and makes you impatient to get started. Suddenly you've lost hours in researching the heck out of it, delving into the depths of your stash hunting that 'thing' you bought a decade ago that you knew would be just perfect for something one day and you'd almost forgot you even had. The kind of project that is the last thing you think about before falling asleep and the first thing you think about when you wake up.  You've just got to make it!

Yeah, well that was the kind of project I was looking for. I've been entrenched in Renaissance stuff for a while now and I knew it was time to mix things up a bit because every time I considered a Renaissance project a part of me would twitch and groan. There's still lots I want to make from the Renaissance period but I need a bit of a break from it so it becomes fun and interesting again. Budget limitations mean I have to work completely from my fabric stash which limits what I can make, especially since much of the fabric stash is already pegged for another project, or there's a reason it hasn't already been used (like it's horrible synthetic). Finding new inspiration that worked within the limitations of the fabric stash wasn't helping with getting over that slump hump.

But I found it! I found my inspiration garment and it's perfect for dubious stash fabric. Well at least if it works out and the fabric is hideous no-one will know! (well accept for you and me of course)
