Finally I am sharing this darling ruffled dress. I used a variation of this pattern on the girls dresses for a wedding in this post.
She waited a LOOOOOONG time for me to finally get her dress made. I’d think I was going to get it made and then something else would come up. It was silly. It is an easy dress to make and doesn’t even take that much time. And the result is so sweet!
I got the instructions for this dress from Tea Rose Home. She created a dress like this as a knock-off of a J.Crew dress. Her design is great, easy to follow, and just so cute! I ordered the pattern she used for the top, but you could probably use any peasant top pattern and adjust the skirt to fit.
I’m also trying out Lightroom for editing. I like it, no I don’t, oh wait yes I do!, well, maybe not, er… THIS is cool, HOW DO YOU DO THIS?, sigh. Learning something new isn’t easy but if learning it makes life easier in the long run it’s worth it right? I go back and forth – wanting to do stuff like I did in Elements, but really liking how some things are easier and better in Lightroom. Maybe I just need full-blown Photoshop. As if I have several hundred dollars laying around that I don’t know what to do with 😀
And I’m contemplating a different name for my photography. Somehow I just don’t really want sew a fine seam on my wedding photos. But I’m not settled on what I DO want on them. Have any ideas? I’d love to hear what you think!
Lots of different editing techniques – just trying things out! If you have any great tips for using Lightroom I’d be delighted if you would share!
