Here it is: the dress-that-you-probably-already-know-what-it-looks-like-because-you’ve-seen-so-much-of-it-in-previous-posts!
It’s a simple fitted dress with 3/4 sleeves and collar and cuffs in some fake leopard scraps that I recently rediscovered in my parents garage. Someone in Australasia may still have an awesome tailored jacket made from this leopard tucked away in their wardrobe – I remember patterning and cutting the sample where I used to work about seventeen years ago! I kept some of the small offcuts for Mum because she was into making teddy bears back then. Thankfully she never used it – so today I get to have a luxurious collar and cuffs on my dress!
I tried to get some detail shots, but the photographer is no dressmaker…
“Make sure you get a good shot of the back vent”
The back vent“
“This bit” (I point to back vent, starting to get impatient as heels are sinking in mud)
Oh well – at least the back vent just made it into the shot. (I just thought this pose needed some explaining!)
It really is late autumn here now – the leaf fall comes and goes so quickly in Auckland, you’ve got to grab a leaf shot while you can!
And for once I’ve made something seasonally appropriate!
