Craftsy Class Photos - Bombshell and Couture Dresses is having a photo contest and the winner gets 5 free craftsy classes and glory and fame on the front page of the Craftsy Web site.  All you have to do is post a photo of yourself making or wearing an item from a Craftsy class and post it on Pinterest. 

I am lucky enough to have some friends who really like photography and I was able to bribe them easily into wasting an afternoon with me.

We went to an old-fashioned/retro soda fountain near downtown Phoenix called MacAlpine's Soda Fountain. I was a little out of my comfort zone being such a spectacle in public place, but it was fun having two people snap pictures like crazy whilst being all decked out.  Plus, we actually ordered ice cream at the soda fountain and it was delicious. The employees were patient and wonderful while we took the photos, as well.

These are the Bombshell Dress I made from class, paired with two petticoats under the dress. 

And now for a costume change and stopping off at my work.  I thought I might get some very Mad Men-esque office-y shots, but everything in the office is modern, so that didn't work as well as I had hoped.  But they do have some colorful backgrounds for the Couture Dress I made.

 I have my eye on the new class - Sewing With Knits, so I am crossing my fingers for the win.

    1. Thanks! I had fun getting them taken. I have good friends who are going to be punished for being nice by me asking them to take photos of EVERY dress I make now.

  2. Love LOVE them both! Especially the chartruese on the second one.

    1. Thank you do much.... I do like the color but I am not sure the cotton was a great choice. It wrinkles like nobody's business. Thanks for the nice words.

  3. Both dresses are lovely and I love the action photos.
