Why is this so terrifying? It's just a dress pattern. People make dresses all the time. Is it because I have to wear it out in public? I try to keep reminding myself that it is just a Halloween costume. I need never wear it after the party next Saturday. It'll be dark. No one will ever see it in the light of day. (Except for those guests that show up while it is still, in fact, daytime.)
I've made quilts. I've made bags. I made a duffel that I handed over to baggage people at the airport and all of my clothes arrived at my destination intact.
So why is making this silly Halloween costume so scary???
