The Sew Weekly Sewing Circle

I really struggled this week. Not only in deciding what to create that is modest and appropriate for the Winter season, but also posing. If it were Summer right now, this challenge would be so easy. First the outfit: I made a blouse and skirt set. The blouse is my own design with a gathered center bust line, princess seams, and gathered cap sleeves. I also made a key hole back that didn't execute well. The skirt is from a project runway Simplicity pattern. It is high waisted and pleated. I thought cherry printed fabric donned Pin Up nicely. Now for the posing: I don't do "pin up" posing very well. I am definitely not curvaceous enough. I totally faked it. Stuffed my bra a plenty, and poofed the skirt out. My face does not scream "pin up" at all. Oh well, I can't fake everything. My husband created a film in photoshop to give the vintage look to the photos.

Lovely pattern creating - the pattern and the cherries (Plus The Shoes!!) look great and I think your pin-up pose here looks just right.
