While the bulk of work is done on Perceneige, I still have a bazillion smaller things to do. Like insert the CB zipper. Finish the CB seam and hem. Add ribbons inside to cover the raw edges of the embroidered net (but that could wait a little, as long as the dress is wearable).
The first pictures for the corset were mostly blurry. I think we got some better ones with the second shoot. I have two decent ones, though :
I haven't had time to download the second shoot's results, so fingers crossed on this front.
Time has flewn by fast this week - I think Monday and Tuesday were pretty much the only days I had to really work. And on Thursday the kids came home, so I had a lot to tidy and clean up, and after that work was pretty much not possible with them + my MIL who stays for a few days. I do try to work but I eep getting ditracted, or remember I should socialize, or the phone rings and I have a long talk with a friend, or let's play monopoly, or I get lured away by the prospect of photoshoots.
Which is great, becauseit means I get to do them and I get new pictures for my portfolio (and, let's admit it, I just love doing them). But it can be a challenge to find a location, organize everyone, finish the dresses... I should really get back to Sarah and Johanne about our next shoot, I have one coming up with Anouk, and I need to check if we can work with both the Darkstones (= "Florence" dress, finish waistcoat for Lord Darkstone) or just Eysmé (= Effie Trinket), and at any rate I have to make contact with a possible location. A big group project is alos coming up, a week-end with lots of people in a beautiful old mansion, several models and photographers, maybe we can finally find the time to make the victorian cartes de visite happen then. Only it will be during a busy period and it's over 5hours away by road, yay ! (but the place has a costume musem I have never seen... I was instantly sold). Then I have my Ursula begging for a shoot, too.
And I still have a good part of my last shoot's picture to edit :
First I discoevered some pictures I liked were blurry, or grainy, but those I am pretty happy about. heileen looks phenomenal in these, and I'm not too ashamed of my editing skills. I might go back and try something more artsy another time.
