You come highly recommended.
That's nice to know.
My friend, Kay, said you did a beautiful job on her dress.
She was a beautiful bride.
God, when I was little, I had this fantasy. I was going to design and build my own wedding dress. The whole thing. All by myself.
And what happened?
I grew up.
I am breathing in.
You've done this awhile?
Are you married?
You probably get your fill building these dresses.
No, I got my fill doing it for ten years. Pull your hair up.
What was your wedding like?
Hey, interview is over. This is the fitting.
Oh, come on. I'm curious. Okay. Fine. Nevermind.
My wedding was lovely. I was one of those women that decided since I couldn't get the man I wanted, I would have the wedding I wanted.
Then what happened?
I grew up. Lift your arm.
You know what I want?
I want your name. I've always loved that name.
Have you known a lot of Gretchens?
You're my first.
I think it's a name that would make you feel pretty.
Who, as they say, is the lucky man?
Kay didn't tell you?
Well, it's a little embarrassing.
Why is that?
It's just a little odd for me because he's kind of well-known. He's sort of famous.
And it's embarrassing?
A little. Yeah.
I see. Is he a boxer?
No. He's Cody Brown. See what I mean?
Should I know who that it?
You're kidding, right?
This is another one of those moments when I realize I don't get out much.
He's a singer and a songwriter. He's in the middle of his first national tour. Sold out stadiums. Letterman. He's on the cover of Rolling Stone this week.
That's so weird. I really thought everyone knew who he was.
I may be a faulty test case.
It's just odd for me because, I mean, I'm not a "pop idol" kind of girlfriend - wife. You know? I didn't meet him backstage after a gig and toss him my house key. I don't dye my hair or tear my clothes. And I have an actual job. I mean, I work. It's weird.
Sounds like it's nice. What's he like?
He's handsome. Funny. He's good to me.
What are his songs like?
His songs are honest.
You have beautiful hair.
Thank you. Do you make clothes for yourself?
I just don't do it.
When I measure you... I see the possibilities, the way fabric might fall. When I measure me I don't see that.
I just see the flaws.
With what? With your body? Be serious.
You be serious.
I mean it.
Let me measure you.
What are you-
When you're done. It will be my turn. Let me measure you. We'll compare numbers.
Because I do the measuring. That's what I do. I measure you. I make you a dress. You get married. It's what I do.
Okay. C'mon. You'll like this. You'll stand on this stool. I'll lift your arms, tilt your head. It's like being pampered. It's like having your hair done. You'll like it-
Sorry. Stand on the stool, please.
Where's your sense of adventure?
I have plenty of that.
Yes. But it doesn't involve having my body measured.
By who? By me? Why? You have a beautiful body. You must know you do. You don't trust me. You don't like me?
I don't know you.
I don't know you and you've got your arms around me. What?
I was teasing. Gretchen. I was playing around. I just thought it'd be-
Play around another time. Okay?
I still want your name.
