Nissa dress photoshoot

It always amazes me that this:

Can come from this (plus a really great photographer and a super amazing model):

(I used nearly 20 different white fabrics including eyelet and lace)

This is the new and improved design for the Nissa Dress! I’ll be detailing the new pattern in a post soon.

You can see the best pictures of this dress in my shop, but I thought I’d share some behind-the-scenes pictures here.

We took pictures at a church. To get a good background the model did some climbing 🙂

The bouquet is made of oregano blossoms from my garden. I think it adds a nice touch without taking attention away from the dress. And as you can see in the next photo, it was a fun prop too.

This particular model was such a joy to work with – she’ll be appearing again for sure!

One last aside, I entered this in the Zibbet Wedding Challenge and although I didn’t get in the top 5, it was still featured here on Pinterest!

My first 1912 Project pattern!

I’m so excited to get started! Unfortunately, I wont have a chance to work on it until tomorrow. I’m thinking of making it up in modern fabric, so as to make a pretty summer dress, but we’ll see 🙂
