How good is good enough?
So, how what quality does your work have to be in order for you to consider it, "good." I am pretty rigorous on myself, and it doesn't always serve me well. I can get bogged down in the tiniest details, to the point that I have at least one WIP that's been stalled out for over 15 years (a very nineties boxy top that would actually look great right now, must pull it out). So, how is the Marilyn Monroe day look coming along (and yes, I totally see Michelle Williams wearing this as she channels Marilyn putting on a show. I love a good narrative for my dresses.) I thought about going all Oona on this dress, and adding some sort of color and contrast, but that skill is a gift, and one I don't have. I did think about using some sort of bold orange, but where, how, and in what quantity?? These questions torment me.
