So I might be addicted to this dress pattern. I used my last modification to make another cross front dress with sleeves. But, and this is a big but, I added the damn inch to the bodice. I rock so much.
Here’s another dress from San Diego Swap Meet fabric. I think I paid $2.00 for this fabric and I have another yard and a half left over.You probably also noticed that I ditched the waistband on this version too. When I was cutting, I just put the waistband pattern piece next to the dress pattern piece and cut them as one.
And what the hell is my camera doing? Today was overcast and gray. Not bright and sunny. Not even a tiny bit sunny. This is an unaltered photo. I’m totally washed out. I’ve tried numerous scene settings (beach, white sun, portrait, SmartCapture, etc) and they all seem to be like this. This is really more of a medium gray knit and my skin is pretty olive with an ass-load of freckles right now. Not this dreamy, washed out white. To get the pictures to look like the ones above, I’ve had to change to Brightness, Contrast, and Saturation after I load them on the computer. I’m used to doing some editing on the computer but it’s hard to see any details in these last few posts with this camera. Gaaaah. On the other hand, my inside shots of the remodel (finish photos coming soon!) look great for inside fluorescent shots. Anyone have any ideas to make it better? I have a Kodak Easy Share C183. It’s not a great camera but it’s nice enough.
