Every summer, it seems, I get the urge to drag out the sewing machine and make myself a couple of tops or dresses. This year the
Barefoot Summer Sheath Dress is back. At some point in the next few days, I would like to set up a back yard photo shoot and show you properly what I’ve been working on. But for now, this will have to do!
It’s a roundup of the microblogging I’ve done on Flickr and Instagram all week. This includes photos I shot for Project 365 and any other extra images I may have posted.
Photos taken with 📷 (
Canon EOS 80D) or 📱 ( Samsung Galaxy S7).
Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…
Saturday My first foray into instant film photography ♥ (View original post on Instagram.) 159/365 I spent a lot of time on one computer or another today, so now I’m unwinding and going analog for a while. (View original Project 365 post on Flickr.) Sunday 160/365 My oldest nephew lives 800 miles away, but he’s visiting this week. It was our first opportunity to get a picture of all five of my parents’ grandchildren together. There’s a 15-year age gap between the youngest boy and the only girl, so it’s basically four men and a baby ☺ (View original Project 365 post on Flickr.) Story for Sunday Monday 161/365 Rainy day heart (View original Project 365 post on Flickr.) Tuesday 162/365 Our baby birds are all grown up. Just a few minutes after I took this photo, this one took flight. (View original Project 365 post on Flickr.) Wednesday 163/365 After a rough few minues where I couldn’t remember how to wind the bobbin, I finally got started sewing a summer dress for myself. (View original Project 365 post on Flickr.) Thursday 164/365 Another rainy day at the office. (View original Project 365 post on Flickr.) I sewed a dress last night. And then I thought about it all day, and I decided I need to rip out the neck, arms, and shoulders, if I truly want to be happy wearing it. So, tonight I’m ripping out a bunch of seams and trying again. (View original post on Instagram.) Friday 165/365 So, this is the dress I sewed this week. There was some ripping out, rethinking, and resewing, but I am happy with the end result. And I have this dingy, dirty-mirror bathroom selfie to prove it. (View original Project 365 post on Flickr.)
