I ran across an interesting article on adjusting your camera's settings for better photos. So I thought I'd play with my camera a bit. I'm not sure if my photos are any better looking, but I did notice a weird feature that I hadn't seen before.
Woah! What do you suppose that feature is for? I didn't know my camera could do that.
So how am I betraying my blog you ask? Well, I bought this over the weekend...
Yup, it's a pattern. But not just any pattern. It's a jumper pattern. Perfect for me because I love dressing like a 5 year old. :)
I picked it up for $1.50 at my favorite vintage shop. I am pretty positive it will fit me. It looks like everything is in there.
I do have a few questions though if anyone can answer them. It looks like the pattern was just kinda shoved back into the package. While there aren't any rips in it, it is a bit crinkly in places. Does anybody have any tips for smoothing them out?
I also want to know. How difficult is it to make a well fitted garment without a dress form. I still don't have one yet. Can I get away with making a dress from only this pattern, or should I wait until I pick one up?
Any advice would be helpful.
Also, thanks for your comments on the great blog revamp of 2010. I worked on it diligently yesterday morning, trying to add some kind of color to it. I was able to utilize my extremely amateurish photoshop skills. It's not perfect, but for now, it will have to do.
