Pop of Pink

Thank you so much for your comments on my last post. Honestly, just knowing that you darlings were here for me, & that I wasn't alone in my lack of inspiration was wonderful encouragement. I spent an afternoon & evening with Veronika (through the internet, of course, though I wish I could spend a day with her in person--in France!), browsing online shops, photo sites, and concocting exciting new projects (which I'll do a separate post on to fill you in!). The company while I was working (custom order) was a welcome change from my usual solitary state of being hunched over my sewing machine, and really helped on the inspiration front. By the end of our chat, I'd come up with a crazy photoshoot idea that I had to try immediately. Following is the result:

I don't really think any explanation or elaboration is necessary here, is it?

Ridding my skirt of some of the water! This is the shirt I mentioned a bit ago. It took about 10 minutes to make, is seriously just a rectangle with slight sleeves and a bit of a boatneck. I didn't finish the edges because I'm lazy & it's for me so it doesn't matter. This fabric is super comfy & lightweight, and therefore perfect for a loose fitting shirt!

I did take some pre-water photos as well, when the sun was a bit brighter. It's setting so much sooner now!

  1. Wow, those pictures are gorgeous! Especially the third one, the water has such a wonderful texture. I hope you didn't get too cold taking those photos though, it looks freezing. :)

  2. I love the photos, really great shots, did you do that all with self-timer, I'm so impressed.

    And you can come hang with me in France any day! ;)
    Our meebo chats brighten my day :)

  3. I'm loving the PINK skirt and the photo's are marvelous! I wanna try and make a Pink petti-coat *spell check* like that for my Birthday coming up.


  4. you should print them and use them for post cards or something, they look dreamy and romantic but not sappy.
    I especially like the one of the necklace floating in a bunch!
