i didn't make this. i spied it on a vintage shopping break with sister beast on my trip back home, and snapped a picture thinking one of you lovely peeps could tell me HOW THE HELL THEY DID THAT. but, lo and behold, upon download it is out of focus.
much like this week has been. a lot of expectations with completely unexpected results. coachella being one; though on the scale of things really just a blip... the parties were quite boring for Stunner and she only wore one of the dresses. i had a feeling it might turn out that way; it sounded like a 48 hour long Scene, although it was hella fun to daydream. but, then! lots of people going out of focus, or rather maybe my view of them was always, i don't know... photoshopped. when they snapped back into straight-out-of-camera it was a shock. revert to original, baby. the perfect pictures i thought i had were a blurry mess.
better in the end to get those files out of the camera and see what you've really got, get rid of the poorer images, even if it's scary to forever delete, and make room on the memory card for sharpness and clarity and color. i've done just that. I WON. and now the weekend lies before me like a prize.
of course a proper prize includes sewing time. interestingly enough i've been craving more clarity in my sewing as well. i want to make things that are as pretty on the inside as on the out. no concealed ugliness.
I LIKE THAT. No. Concealed. Ugliness. in sewing and in people.
