I love the old sailor dresses from the 1950s. When I finished sewing it I showed it to my mom and she was like, “I used to wear one of those when I was a kid.” So that was kind of funny. After lots of bribing, I finally got my little brother to help me with the photo shoot and I am now 2 candy bars short because of it. He’s wearing the pea coat that I made. I hope you like it. :)
I started my own blog. Here it is if you would like to see it. :) http://www.esther-fromthesticks.blogspot.com/
I take all my own photos with a tripod and self timer.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
