What a fantastic month. Looking at the photos from this month’s photo shoot I cannot help but think of how far we have come. Everything from photography, photo editing, and even the garments themselves have improved. As you can guess, one year into blogging and I am feeling as bright and happy as these photos. I know I have a long way to go until I hit half my goals for the blog, but I am enjoying the ride and looking forward to the challenges ahead!
I love this jacket. It presented me with a few challenges, which I mentioned in my earlier patternmaking post, but I find myself at the end smarter and with a lovely jacket. Bonus! Before I started, I was worried about the bulk on the swirl side of the jacket and finishing the edges. I will still tweak a few little things on my next Swirl jacket, like lowering the back neck a couple of centimeters, and adding one more snap closure to prevent pull lines on the jacket. I would also love to try making the jacket with the colours swapped. I would love to hear how you would alter the jacket in the comments below.
I have to thank my fabulous photographer Arthur Pengelly. He has been dragged along on this journey with me, but he is always patient with his introverted model. We have been learning as we go, from that first photo shoot at Massey University to our most recent, it has been exciting to see the progress. Thanks Arthur.
A special thank you to everyone who tunes into Periscope live to help me choose which photos would look the best on the blog. And thanks to all those who watched the replay and contacted me to add your two cents worth too! Your input as always helps to make the whole process more fun.
