Just in case anyone is desperate for the skirt pattern, it is Butterick 4859; great pattern.
The first dress is my favourite; amazing shape. I admit, I've wanted to make up this dress for ages and ages and been too afraid. I'm tall, which works for me with this shape, but I also have hips and thighs and a butt, and while the OP is missing most of these parts, she is certainly gorgeouscurvy. Worth a try, right? Really, simply stunning.
Would someone be so kind and to remind me of the exact pattern the first dress is? I know the Big Four all did a version of it, but I'd really rather not go dig around and try to match seams; I have a cold and even finding the skirt pattern in my drawer was hard.
I like this. I really see you in it, without it being too cluttered or "immature".
How do you set up the lighting for your indoor photoshoots, though? I'm trying to set up something similar in my apartment -- with two felt backdrops over a closet and everything, creepy -- but I'm finding it next to impossible to get good lighting indoors without having to set up a huge, bulky contraption that I need to take down again after a quick portrait inspiration.
I suppose I, like you, seem to be a jane/jack of all trades? I can have a permanent sewing area, music area, painting area, draping area and lounge, but so far, room hasn't magically expanded to give me a portrait area...
Yay! I didn't know this was here; naughty craftster, hiding the knitalongs on me. Yes, that's right, it was craftster, not my being blind. *dares anyone to say otherwise*
I've been working on this cami for a little while now -- off and on for two weeks -- and have now hit the 'black hole knitting' stage. You know, where you're knitting up a storm, check back after several episodes of Teen Titans/Avatar/whatever and seem to have not gained an inch. Where did the knitting go?! Woe.
I'm totally making the math up as I go, and in some parts the pattern goes [k, yo, k3, sl1-k2tog-psso, k5, yo] instead of the normal 4&4, but it looks good, and this is my comfort knit, so I don't really care.
Oh! And I'm making it out of some lovely lilac cotton yarn I ripped from a Value Village XL turtleneck sweater. Yum.
I saw one of these 'bubble skirts' out of a really drapey satin fabric while I was down in the states and now I want one; the best of both words, satin, but not having to worry about the part where satin shows EVERYTHING.
Great work; your top is so very hot. Beautiful neckline.
