today i went grocery shopping, and passing the magazine rack i picked up the new vogue issue and looked through it. i used to have a subscription and looked forward each month to getting mine in the mail. i looked at the lovely photos of the beautiful dresses and thought maybe someday we would be sewing something that would appear in the pages.


we took pretty pictures of pretty models that looked pretty good. (i sewed these dresses)


and some of the dresses did get into a few magazines.

i sewed so many of these dresses it was not even funny! i sewed them five, six, and seven, at a time. i sewed them in pink, and blue, and bronze, and green, and white, and black...well, you get the idea! i think for a time i kept count, and finally stopped counting at like 200!


it was fun for a while, to sew beautiful and sometimes quite interesting dresses. now every so often i sew a special dress for a very special person, or someone who wants to pay a lot of money for a special dress. but i don't really care anymore if what i sew gets into vogue magazine. i love sewing the costuming that i have been doing. not anything couture very often, but i seem to be able to make people happier than before. the couture stuff was just so very fussy. i get a big thrill these days, when a dancer at a hafla or dancing in a restaurant is wearing something i sewed, even when it is just a pair of velvet gauntlets! i had finally realised that the fashion world was a rather strange thing, and most of the people were not very happy in it. almost everyone i know in the dance world seems happy, and for sure they make people happy with the dance.

( except for the ones on the vogue cover, the dresses in this post were sewn for madina vadache couture)
