And my cardigan from Collectif Clothing.
I made this dress using two different patterns to give this dress a more vintage/retro feel. There’s not much to really sa about the constructio of this dress as I’ve used both these patterns before qite a bit and they’re are relatively simple patterns. Though I did cheat and machine the hemline due to lack of time.
I didn’t bother to line this dress as the cotton was thick enough not to have to.
I’m still working on getting better at taking outfits photos, ie bossing my poor husband round more and trying to be more confident when taking photos in a public space. Also to take more photos, so I have more to choose from! I did learn from this mini shoot that standing in direct sunlight was probably not the best option and that shade works a little better, also should probably practice posing a bit more to look a lot less awkward (I have no idea what I’m doing with my feet in the last photo)! I’m also going to learn how to use the manual setting properly on my camera, I have a lot of stock to reshoot, so this should help with that matter.
