As I mentioned earlier, I finally got around to re-making my favorite dress last week and now I basically a) want to wear it all the time, and b) want to make six more of them as backups.
I made it basically the exact same way as the first time around, except that I lengthened it by a few inches. I guess sometime in the last year I stopped hating the idea of longer skirts. I’m not sure what that means and I’m not sure I like it.
Two cool things:
1) That awesome vintage 50mm lens I bought last year that was made before autofocus? I used it to take some of these shots. And they (ok, some of them) came out in focus! I’m way more excited about this than I should be. In my defense, I’d been using my kit lens exclusively because it’s just easier but the pictures turn out pretty flat and boring. I’ve been meaning to play around with the 50mm for a while so I’m glad the pictures turned out when I actually did. I’m just going to pretend that the triple digits of failed out-of-focus photos didn’t happen.
2) This is going to sound stupid but normally I hate photographing the left side of my face. Today I actually like how it looked so I went with it.
Two more things:
3) I hacked off 5 inches of my hair the other day. It’s freaking me out a bit seeing that typed out (the sheer idea of having short hair freaks me out, not a clue why) but realistically my hair was getting to Arwen status so 5 inches didn’t actually make that much of a difference.
4) It’s getting to that time where my roots are becoming ridiculous. Please ignore.
I hope everyone’s week is going well! I’m off to try to cram nine days worth of clothes and sewing projects into two carry-ons. Check-in baggage fees be damned!
