So remember this project?


Well, I finally finished my shirt and since my sister is around, I got her to snap a few shots of me wearing it.  I've found the whole self-timer-self-portrait shot is alot more difficult than it appears.  You have to get everything set up and then get the camera to focus on the point where you would be standing.  Except you're behind the camera setting up the shot, so there isn't anything for the camera to focus on.  Usually I stick a chair where I will be standing, but then I have to run in front of the camera, move the chair out of the shot, and pose....a bit of a pain.  Anyone have any tips?

So, Julie and I had a little photo shoot


I'm pretty happy with it.  It's a nice and lightweight fabric without being see-through.  It's perfect for the hot weather here.  Also, I got to determine my own button placement, which was crucial in eliminating the ever dreadful "gap" right around the bust buttons.  Girls, you know what I'm talking about.  I spaced the buttons so that the ones at the bust are closer together, and voila! no gap.  I won't have to worry about anything peeking through.  No more awkward moments trying to get a safety pin in there to do the job.  Success!
