The Monthly Stitch: Vintage Pattern - Action Shots!!

Remember when I posted about the dress I made from a vintage pattern for my first monthly stitch challenge? 

Well that post just showed the dress on a coat hanger and it wasn't at all inspiring, so I was determined to have some "action shots" of my dress.

I was meeting my friend for a coffee on Saturday and asked her if she would mind taking a few photos of me in my new frock. I've known Jaimee for years and I never knew she was such a fantastic photographer! We took these photos at an empty lot near our apartment, when we first came home to New Zealand there was a wee historical cottage here that was demolished, it was a pretty big deal at the time as the time as I don't think the property owners had permission to demolish the building. It does make for a good place to take photos though, apparently a market is meant to be opening around here soon, so perhaps I should take more photos here before its gone.




I hope you all had a great Monday xoxo
