Urban End of Summer Scarf Dress

Added Sep 23, 2009

This came together at the last minute. I wish I’d had more time, but it was fun to work under a tight deadline. I only got the elastic yesterday so I sewed it all last night and got my coworker to snap some pics before she left for the day. I stuck to the basic instructions since time was tight and I’ve never used elastic thread before. I think the scarves are pretty (they have bronze sequins) and that’s what makes this dress special.

    Thanks Nehmah! I know…. the colors aren’t the same in all of the pictures… actually all three colors that you mentioned are present in the scarves; blue, grey, golden, and also brown. They are showing differently because I shot them in different locations. I had very limited time to make this dress and take pictures so I wasn’t sure what my final picture options would be so I took pictures several times today. Some of them are in my room this morning on my dress form (incandescent lighting), some on a dress form at work (flourescent lighting) and the ones that I’m modeling are outside at around 5:45 pm today (twilight). I tried to color correct as much as possible, but I wasn’t able to use photoshop due to my location and computer access. This is definitely one of those times were the contestants do not have the luxury of time to stage everything perfectly.

    The dress is great. Best of luck in the competition. What intrigues me are the two colors. Three shots show a blue-grey color; three show a golden color; the last one is a blend of the two. cordially, Nehmah
