Pattern | My Own from Hound
Fabric | Cloud printed Spoonflower organic cotton sateen
Phew! The cloud print dress is finally finished! I LOVE this dress, the print turned out looking awesome and not at all like I fell into a vat of bleach like I was worried about and it fits really well. I know this starts to lose it’s meaning when I say it every time I make something, but this is my new favorite thing! Fittingly for the name of this dress we’ve been having cloudy / rainy weather for the last two days and I’m also without my photographer. This is my second self timer shoot for this dress. The first was AWFUL, mostly it was the indoor lighting but I’ve also grown accustomed to being photographed by Luke who understands my in front of camera awkwardness and directs me as well as uses a camera with beautiful lenses that can handle the light a bit better (okay it’s he uses a 5D, it’s a lot better) than my camera. I got up super early this morning and went outside and did some self timer photos, people this is MAJOR for me. I used a self timer out in public! Can you tell how awkward I felt in that second photo when I discovered a delivery guy to the Italian wholesale place across the street was watching me? Hahaha yikes, I am not that outgoing. Major props to Luke’s bike for being my tripod out there, good thing you didn’t bring it in last night dude!
Anyway this dress is a big hit with me, I’m the only one who’s seen it so far besides my pets and a bathroom mirror photo I sent my mom, oh and the Italian delivery guy, but I didn’t ask him how he felt about it. I’m planning on wearing it out Friday for Luke’s and my 10 year celebration (which I’ve taken to referring to as the “solid decade”), so I’m hoping he can snap a few nicer photos then. I printed the cloud print fabric with Spoonflower and the pattern is my own, the Sparrow dress from this past summer’s Hound collection. I also think it will be able to transition into fall pretty well with a blazer or cardigan, tights and boots. Yes!
