Today, I’m blogging a dress which I finished weeks ago already. So why only write about it now?
Let’s just say that my two previous attempts at taking pictures were not entirely successful. As in: they were a disaster. Ava has become incredibly difficult to photograph. Not only can she not sit, stand or lie still for a second…
… she also refuses to wear a bandana or clip which tame her wild curls into an acceptable hairdo.
This third attempt yielded a full three more or less acceptable pictures. That is three more than the previous two attempts.
Anyway, let’s talk about the dress. It’s another version of my one-day-to-be-launched Akiko pattern, this time with elasticized sleeves (which need to be lengthened a bit, I learned).
The fabric is from one of my favorite designers: Eloise Renouf for Cloud 9. It is called Spring Sampler and is part of her Shape of Spring line. I love the colors and the print. It is fun, but not childish. I bought it at Noeks. The contrasting strip is Cotton Couture Solids in Gold.
Now I have just 2 more finished dresses for Ava which I still have to take pictures of. So that means … six more photoshoots?
