Gingersnaps...oh no

Let's just say today was very long, tiring, interesting, and frustrating.  Thankfully it started off well because I got to see all my ballet friends at the studio, but my real reason for going was to pick up the gingersnap fabric, trim, and patterns.  These costumes would have to be made in little time because of the fact the studios yearly Nutcracker pictures are next weekend.  Of course I was now completely overwhelmed because on top of the ridiculous and complicated costumes I had homework and other things to attend to.  You're probably thinking gingersnap costumes??? they can't be that bad.  Well I beg to differ these were the costumes from hell...with store bought patterns that my mom and I turned into homemade patterns.  After hours and hours of sewing, cutting, measuring, and stressing I was done. There was no way I was going to be able to do this.  So I stopped and I'm hoping tomorrow will bring more luck and patience, i'll be sure to let you all know how it goes.
