One of my dearest friends, Brittany, is currently earning her master's in Journalism from Columbia University (I mean, could she be any more prestigious?). One of her recent assignments was a photo essay that followed an entire process from start to finish, and she asked if she could photograph me through the step-by-step of sewing a skirt. Of course, I said yes, as long as we could watch several episodes of Dawson's Creek while we did it. She said we had a deal.
All the pictures below were taken by Brittany during that afternoon. Enjoy the behind the scenes of the making of one of the Heart-Shaped Waistband Skirts!
|First, the pinning|
|Followed by the interfacing. This pic is probably my favorite. You guys know how I feel about our bridge!|
|Never underestimate the necessity of a good pressing|
