Me-Made June, Day 8
I was very pleased with this ensemble when I put it on. And then received a compliment from a friend on my Pattern Magic dress. Which was very nice!
But I have to confess I felt absolutely zero motivation to take a photo of myself this morning. It's not that I'm having trouble dressing in all me-made clothes, since my wardrobe is now mostly sewn by me. It would be more challenging for me to find an outfit that is all NOT me-made actually... To be honest I have been quite disappointed with my photos the past few days. It's harder to take a well balanced photo in the harsh Australian sunlight. A reason why I usually head for the shade... Don't get me wrong, I love sunshine as much as the next person, but I am starting to think I should have chosen a different "spot" for this month which was more shadow-y.
Well for a number of reasons; Sienna has hurt her foot so no walkies today, me having some officework to do, long story short, blah blah, I did take this photo much later in the day today when a few clouds had blown fortuitously in, and the sun thoughtfully went behind one just long enough so I could take this photo without that bright sunshine creating in my photo those stark extremes of light and shadow which kill all details in my ensemble.
Clouds, for the win...
