Well, I sat on the sofa with the dog after work and got up just in time to get some horrible flash pictures because the light had faded. Excellent work.
I left off the second ruffle because it was too much. Andrew hemmed and hawed, and then when I said I didn't like it and was taking it off, he said it looked like a suit of armor. Ha.I need to add the second row of stitches on the hem, because the bobbin ran out of thread. Sometimes when that happens I just quit. Even though it takes maybe 60 seconds to fix.
Also, this deserves some nice daylight pictures. Andrew just came back from China, on a trip for business school. He bought me some lovely silk! The blue is deeper than it looks, and the red is a beautiful blue-red, which is the kind that I like! Yes, loot! Score!
I will have better pictures of the blouse and the silk later in the week. I have a fantastically ridiculous photo shoot planned for this blouse- it all has to do with the color scheme!
