Beignet Skirt - Finished!!

Now, I had wanted to take some lovely pictures of me in the skirt around Lincoln inspired by the always lovely photo's Debi takes of her finished projects. However, it turned out my photographer/fiance Dom was actually at work! He'd remembered wrong, its next Saturday that he's off work. I suppose it's for the best because when I opened the curtains, this is what I saw:
Not exactly ideal picture taking conditions. So when Dom left for work, I eventually got the tripod up, and worked out how to attach the camera to it. Then I spent the next half an hour working out how to set it to self timer and making it focus in the right place as the auto focus isn't on and I've still not got round to asking Dom to turn it back on! Then I got dressed up nice :)

Yay, I'm so pleased with it, I like it alot :) I love the belt too, its so cute! I used Tilly's tutorial. Also, it's my face! I finally had the courage to show my face! Trying to choose pictures was really hard, there were many more that were just awful. I can still find something wrong with myself in every single one of these pictures, but in the end I just had to try and stop criticising myself and get a grip! Lol. I'm hoping choosing pictures of myself and the clothes I make will get easier as I go along. I'm going to try hard to stop criticising how I look and just be happy with myself. 
Anyway, enough rambling! What do you think? :) Also, I'd love to know which is your favourite picture!

  1. I love the skirt, great choice of tights too. Yes you must stop criticising yourself! I like to second photo the best - the angle of your leg looks great.

  2. Thank you! :) These are definitely my favourite tights, so warm.
    I like that one too, I think I kind of twisted my foot out or something , not sure :S

  3. LOVE the skirt! The buttons are really great and it will go with everything! Thanks for the sweet comment about my photos :-) You're photos turned out great!! I know how disappointing rain can be (and the lack of photographer)!

  4. Your welcome :)
    Aww, thank you! My OH inspired the buttons, he was looking at coats online and came across a navy coat with gold buttons. I knew I had to have gold buttons for my skirt! :)

  7. Aww, thank you! :D The skirt is actually really good at making my waist look small and tummy look flat! So its a win-win with this skirt, its really flattering! I actually have a squishy wobbly tummy, but all is hidden by the skirt! lol
