I finally learned how to use the timer on my camera and thought the pictures would be much better. Not so. They still seem pretty grainy to me. I don't think the res goes very high on the camera to begin with. We'll see. I'm a very slow evolver.

The dress, which is really a jumper, is made from a Tina Givens pattern, called Bethany. It's made with a lightweight velvet and trimmed with unhemmed linen around the neckline, armholes and hem. And it's all washable! I made the blouse much earlier from my stash. A semi-sheer dusty mauve dotted swiss using a Simplicity pattern. I don't have detail shots of the dress yet, but when I do they'll be on my Clothes from Winter page.
Now I'm off to Patti's Not Dead Yet Style to join all the post-holiday Visibles!SpyGirl's 52 Pick-me-up showcases Panatone's color for 2015: Marsala. Who knew that was the exact color of my new velvet dress. I just gotta go and join that party too. Come on over and join us at both places.
