The day I took these my Mom had the garage door open for some gardening reason, so I went down to the creek to take pictures of this pretty pretty dress. And boy am I glad I did! These turned out pretty damn awesome. If you're wondering why I don't normally take pictures down here, this is why:
The neighbors are basically letting it turn into a jungle. The same field that I took dandelion covered pictures in a month ago is pretty difficult to even walk through now. I guess I shouldn't be judging them for their landscaping (or lack thereof) because I am some weirdo skipping through their yard to take pictures of myself with a tripod. So.
Plus it's pretty marshy down there with all the rain we've been getting.
Okay so let's talk about the beautiful vintage floral elephant in the room. This dress is bangin'. It's slammin'. It's covered in roses and came with a matching red sash. It also was a size 14, so I had to stumble around the sewing machine getting it to fit me. I couldn't just hem it obvi, look at the trim! So I had to cut the skirt off and raise it up. Which proved difficult since it had a zipper in the back. So I had to replace that too, and take in the bodice. The result isn't too shabby! Though the princess seams don't fall on my boobs the way they should.
Since these turned out so good (come to think of it, my last shoot out here was really nice, too), I might have to trek out to the jungle more often for photos! Maybe next time I'll wear proper adventure gear (AS IF).
