My official photographer returned last night from summer camp.
I put her to work today photographing some of my creations for Back to School For Mom's Week. I have this grey print top (left) in my closet that gets a lot of wear. It's just a simple box shape really, so I traced around and tried to recreate it (minus the pleats). I used cotton poplin for my version.
I was planning to do a simple tutorial, then I came across an awesome refashioning blog, Cotton and Curls. She has an almost identical shirt with a fabulous tutorial (complete with computer generated illustrations which I can never do). And she's way younger and thinner.
According to my 13 year old photographer, this shirt emphasizes my Bingo Wings.
I nearly peed my pants laughing when she said 'Bingo Wings'. I'd never heard the term before. So I Googled it, and I'm proud to say that I'm not alone. Even Madonna has 'em.
Heck, I've got wrinkly elbows too, but let's just focus on the great top :)
