A question for the audience: am I crazy enough to take burgundy alcohol-based art markers and meticulously color all of the roses on a dark floral skirt I got the other day, because the roses are more orange and brick -toned than the photos on the listing appeared?

... I think this is a trick question. I just did a few test flowers, and they turned out beautifully. I foresee a lengthy clothing customization project in my future, because I'm pretty sure I AM that crazy.

We had a day and a night of severe thunderstorm spun off one of the larger hurricanes. No power, couldn't settle to read, couldn't think because all that came to mind was disaster. I had two small dolls that had no waists for whom elastic did not work for doll clothes. I spent the dark hours sewing underwear right on the dolls with needle and thread, and then red for the girl and blue for the boy mini-check gingham outfits for them, complete with Pilgrim bonnets. Close focus, total absorbtion. Now I know why basketweaving class is so often prescribed.

If you have an evening when the brain raccoons won't leave you alone, this would be an admirably suited project.

I've actually done that (but with fabric markers). I don't know if you're as crazy as I am!

For the potential future satisfaction with a Just Right skirt instead of one that is relatively close, I say go for it.

Makes sense to me ... and it's not really 'crazy', just a bit obsessive.

Ma'am, if you're crazy, I'll be more than happy to enable you--I've used acrylic paint to similar purpose, to highlight details in fabric prints that had dulled with wear.

(And, since I mispositioned the comment and see no means of editing it: I should clarify that I was addressing the OP.)

No worries. And I'd be happy to enable her, too!
