It’s such hard work getting your other half to take pics isn’t it? There’s always something more urgent, like motorbike races, Kung Fu Panda, or a tub of Ben & Jerry’s.
Anyway, here we are, 6 Napoleon in two forms:
#1 Work casual
The skirt with a hastily hem-tweaked RTW T shirt. I wore it to work like this yesterday, but with the original hem on the T shirt. It looked absolutely fine, but I decided to mess with it, as you do.
#2 Steampunk ready, with the boned, wet-look bodice, [Truly Victorian 460] and a few accessories, just for fun. The fastening is just hooks and eyes, but I’m not happy with it, and may change it to buttons or perhaps even an exposed zip or decorative hooks. I don’t like having the eyes exposed. I hope you appreciate my wonderful Vogue model poses- if not, blame Ruth who started it!
I absolutely love the skirt, and it will be worn to death, although I feel the urge to add pockets. It floats and swirls, but not foofily, and even when the wind caught it, only the top layer fluttered, and all was perfectly decent.
Thanks to Marijana for the challenge, and now I’ve finally reached the finishing line, we need a pic of us all together…perhaps we can get some good shots when we get out 6Nap night out in London in a few weeks?
Meanwhile, here’s Kate, Marjana, and Ruth looking amazing. Marjana, I know this isn’t your final ‘artistic’ photo, but I’m impatient!
And a reminder of the original imspiration – didn’t we do well?
