When you are planning on making a post mainly with photos it would really be an advantage if the photos were good, right!! Well, not today - sorry!!!
This top has put me through 3 photo shoots and I made one mistake after another BUT I learned some things along the way! Unfortunately for you I will only show that in my next post, ha.
So today you are getting some overexposed crap and I'm sorry about that but I just couldn't handle a 4th photo shoot.
Oh, and thank you Celina for helping me avoid utter disaster and doing your editing magic.
The worst part is that I looooove this top and I have been looking forward to show it to you. So here it is folks!!
It is actually made with the same self-drafted pattern that I used for THIS post. But with short sleeve of course.
What a difference this fabric makes compared to the green think and drapey fabric I made the other top from.
Both these lovely fabrics are from Miss Matatabi on Etsy.
The navy quilted knit is so cool and suitable for so many projects - it is both soft and sturdy at the same time.
I wasn't able to find the amazing floral cotton fabric again in her web shop - I think I bought it on sale so it might be gone - but it has texture a bit like gauze but thicker. I love it so SO much. And I can reveal that it is playing a big role in my next post - uhh, teaser!
Cotton shirt from H&M and slim utility pants from J.Crew.
Here is one of the few photos from one of the earlier photos shoots that was not blurred (it took some time to figure out how to handle focus AND taking photos with a remote with my new lens, ha) BUT with this shot I realized that ironing my shirt would be a good idea. Siiiiigh!
Thank you for your patience!
