Embracing Autumn, One Garment At A Time: Dress with Pleated Neckline

My other half is back from his travels and so I braved the wind and the rain for some live pictures of the dress with pleated neckline.

You can see how the fabric creases like something mad:

And just because I made it from scraps of leather and got my finger all horribly sticky in leather glue, a glimpse of the corsage:

I have written at length of how the one aspect of blogging that I really dislike is the modelling. My husband always keeps laughing at me and tells me to lighten up. An then this happens:

So now you know why I usually just stand to attention and have the photo business wash over me ;-).

Anyway, there was some tomfoolery with the “woman posing with car”-theme:

IMG_5918We have a hire car at the moment and it is by far the biggest car to ever grace our driveway, so I thought I will practice my gazing into the middle distance kind of look:

So yes, next time it’s back to normal pictures again. My version on normal at least 😉 .

    Beautiful dress! I love the pleated neckline, I find them very flattering.

      Thank you Gjeometry. I have now worn the dress twice and decided that I will leave the neckline exactly as it is, no further changes required. I think I will get a lot of wear out of this dress 🙂
