Use it or lose it... seriously. By this I mean practicing and knowing your craft or even speaking a second language. For instance, me speaking Vietnamese fluently... not so great. Heheh. The only people I really have to speak Vietnamese to is my parents and older relatives who don't speak or understand English well. That is the only time I ever speak Vietnamese, which is super bad. I never want to lose it... so I've come to the conclusion... when I have babies, I'm sending them off to their grandparents! Hehehe, I kid... I kid.
But honestly, if you don't use it, you'll eventually lose it. I missed draping so much and the project I've been working on (as seen below) as fueled me with inspiration to do it more often and as often as I can. Draping... I love it more than the actually drafting of patterns. I get to sculpt fabric and mold it into whichever way I want. It's truly an art, and I have yet to master it! Practice makes perfect, experience, and learning along the way... being hands on... touching and feeling the fabric... Ah, it's just a shame that I can't use 100% Silk Tulle because that sucker costs... ummm... just about $100 a yard!! Yikesssss. Oh well, we all have to make due with what we have and make the best of it! =D Have a wonderful Saturday guys!!
