Here’s the story.
I made this dress awhile ago.
It’s Burda’s Pearl Dress pattern.
It was the first Burda pattern I’d ever sewn and I it made for practice before I put together my Shuffle Dress. Fortunately it worked out…and I can wear it. So I will. And because of the crazy print on the fabric it will work to be linked up to the Graphic Print challenge sew along that we have going on over at Project Sewn. So I will do that to.
The only problem is this:
and of course, this:
Let’s look at the picture above for just a minute.
The cat on my foot, my crazy hands trying to grab the cardigan that is flapping in the breeze, the electrical outlet, the muddy pumpkin, and Ruth’s hand reaching in from the top corner…not so great…
Unless, you consider that Grace took the pictures.
My husband had taken Simon to his track meet, the sun was going down and my choice of photographers was narrowed down to Grace or Ruth. So Grace go the job.
We were only on the porch for about 5 minutes (I was FREAKING OUT that my neighbors would see me all dressed up with my 5 year old photographing me…they already think I’m crazy enough already without witnessing something like that!) And I swear to you out of the 74 pictures she took (she has a quick trigger finger) these are the best of the bunch.
Anyways…for what it’s worth I like this pattern. And it’s easy to make.
It’s just not so easy to photograph.
Which illustrates again why I’m much better behind the camera (or sewing machine or computer) than I am in front of it.
I’ll be back again on Friday…but I promise without any pictures of myself. Until then enjoy National Dictionary Day.
