Our five days of photography starts today! Last week I steamed a lot of garments and I’ve gotten to know all 90 something of them inside and out. Of course, I was already pretty familiar with the ones I designed, after making up new cable patterns writing instructions for my knitters. Still, there were a few surprises.
For instance, I was taken by the wrong side of this cable pattern AND the bigger surprise for me was that I planned the piece as a poncho and it turns out it really wants to be a skirt. Amanda, Martha and I all watched in astonishment as the “poncho” slid down of the shoulders of our dress form and settled neatly on her hips. I wish I had caught it on video. Maybe we can recreate it.
Here are a few more teaser shots of the textures from my next book:
Should I name this next booklet Norah Gaughan vol 13, as expected? It is 2013 after all. Or, maybe I should skip over the 13, like they do with tall buildings and name it Norah Gaughan: Top Down. Yes, that’s right – Top Down. I swore I never would…but more about that later.
Maybe you have a clever idea for the booklet title. Let me know!
