Sailor Dress in Feild

Added Feb 4, 2010

Roanoke, Indiana...






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.

    this is the most amazing thing I have seen in a long time. Any one else would look frumpy but that red hair makes it perfectly nostalgic. SO great and I bow down to this photography. mm, great photos.

    I am constantly amazed at your creations and your photography skills (by the way, what photo software do you use to get your photos to look like that?) I love this dress and it was well worth the two candy bars for your brother to help you My brother is at the point where I have to pay him to help me :) God bless, :D
