The dress, the shoot

I am off this morning to uni, my last day as a practising MA student!  I’ll be putting up my work, turning in my pieces and handing in my dissertation.  And then a wee party with uni friends to celebrate!  In the meantime, I wanted to share the LOVELY pictures from Wednesday’s photoshoot.


I am so thankful to have this step completed and so thrilled that the photos turned out so lovely!

    Congratulations on a job well done!! I especially like the closeup shots, so I could see the details in the stitch pattern.
