Yes I could. Though statistically, I'll be struggling.
I'm only 5ft4 so that disqualifies me for the runway i think. Still, there's nothing wrong with playing along. So today, my official photographer suggested I pose like a professional model. Hmm....We took a lot of pictures, but I am only putting two on here. These two, are the ones where I look less silly, and I do still think I look silly in these...lol
I wore the dress I made by using my old top. I really like this dress, it was so easy to do, and it feels so cormfortable.
I'm not sure what I am doing with all these angles in the picture, but isn't this what gets putin magazine spreads? lol
|I have no clue what my photographer hoped to achieve with this pose. This was enough to convince me I would be a crap model, coz I was not supposed to laugh.|
One thing i retained from todays photoshoot ( i insist on calling it that), is the fact that I am not cut out to be a professional model. I spent the whole time laughing, and gave completely different expressions to what my photographer was asking of me. Plus, when I used to watch america's next top model, i used to cringe at some of the themes and challenges. I wouldn't mind the money though, and the free stuff...ah...imagine not having to worry about the price of clothes.
I received some really helpful feedback yesterday regarding a good skirt pattern that would be easy to make for the rest of the june days ( thanks everyone). So I am currently checking them out, and will get 1 or two patterns this weekend.
There was the mention of pencil skirts. Ahem!! I am quite honestly scared of making one because I never get a good fit with pencil skirts. my waist is a size 10, and my hips fit into size 16 for pencil skirts....that, is alot of divide, so I tend to go for flared skirts. I used to be safe with A-Line skirts, but even they are getting quite dodgy on me now, except they are seriously flared.
I tried to draft a pencil skirt the other day, and when it came to connecting the waist and the hips, the diagram looked so strange. So either I don't know how to draft a skirt, or there's something rather strange with my body. I don't think I will be trying that again. lol.
