Bodices and writing and sewing and stuff!
I find myself doing versions of the same thing in my writing. It may just be a scene to get the writing flowing, but it needs to be coherent and consistent - or I can't necessarily tell how the characters will interact, and so forth. Even if I never use that scene, it exists in my head as a 'oh, okay, remember that time when?' I know more about my world, more about my characters, and more about my writing. And maybe that's what it's really about - finding out more about me and what I expect from myself - both for writing and for sewing.
Both the 'real' bodice and the 'real' story will take time. But both will be better for it - stronger, more precise, and far less likely to fall apart on me!
