I finally managed to photograph another garment! It's a tricky business during winter it seems, as I don't really like indoor shots (especially for a lack of a decent background) and my photographer isn't really available during daytime hours. Anyway, I dragged my dear brother away from his studying to quickly take some pictures of this dress:
Um, yes. The rest of the dress is pretty straightforward: a pleated skirt with pockets, a tie around the waist, no sleeves, yadda yadda. But the back has a nice surprise:
Omg, buttons! They were functional on the original dress but mine aren't because my buttonhole foot is still lost (and surprise surprise, it's hard to get decent buttonholes with your regular presser foot... Not impossible, but tricky!) and I never used them anyway.
The verdict: I love my new dress, it's already a staple in my wardrobe, I should really trace the pieces of the old one so I have a paper pattern, I need a new buttonhole foot. Or find the old one. But I'm afraid it fell into my scraps bin and was accidentally tossed out. Boo.
This is a really cute dress!!!BeantwoordenVerwijderen
