I am so delighted that I was able to finish this project on time. There were so many little obstacles that got in the way, but thankfully there were a few extensions and I was able to complete this dress - which I love!
The whole way through sewing this dress I just wasn't sure if it would be a good fit. Now that it is done, it is so comfortable, flatters my figure and is even work appropriate (I work in an office wear suits are often worn).
I am also so excited that this is the only self-portrait session I have done where I like the pictures :) Too many of the pictures I have taken of myself for this blog are with me setting my camera on some random solid surface and running to get in position before the flash goes off. It's no difference with these photos, but they actually turned out. (I would like to thank the Earle Brown fire hydrant for being so readily available to hold my camera).
The other fun thing I have to mention about this dress is that I finally have a use for my brooch. I received it as a gift while I was visiting my extended family that lives in Ukraine. I have no idea if it is vintage, but my mom and I both agree that it is not new - so I'll tag it as vintage. It is the perfect accessory for this dress.
Sorry for the redundant pictures, I am just so thrilled that my self portraits turned out.
Live the moment, love life!
