New 1577; same Old Me

I know this is a awful picture, but here it is anyway:

Note to self: ambushing sleepy twelve-year-old child on first day of summer vacation, saying “hey will you take a picture of me?” does not result in quality photoblogism.

But, this is a new simplicity 1577, made in a few hours over the weekend. It’s blue chambray purchased at fabric Outlet in the mission *last* weekend, which is probably one of my fastest fabric-purchase-to-garment-sewn turnaround times in years. It’s really, really good fabric — not awfully wrinkly and super-comfortable, especially because it seems to have no stretch to it.

Anyway, you’re seeing a picture of me in it because I have been really lazy about wrasslin’ my dresses onto the dressform for proper Photos. By the time I get one made, I just want to wear it, and then I have to remember to go back and take the pictures, and that implies waiting for good light, which implies the weekend, and … with one thing and another, it just becomes too MUCH. So I figured I could either get over my laziness when it concerns new-dress dressformage, or I could get over my apprehension that posting pictures of myself leaves me open to “helpful” feedback on my weight and general appearance in the comments. (Which has actually never happened that I can remember, so … bad pictures of myself it is!)

Accessories here are a pair of liberty Bensimons and one of my favorite swatch watches (it has a really challenging clasp and the face is hard to read, but other than that it’s a very good watch). I was going to wear this with a pink sweater, to match the shoes, but I ended up taking it off — the weather was beautiful here today. The pockets are lined in a different liberty fabric — when I do get this one onto the dress form, I’ll show you.
