Never trust your cameraman. Butterick 5561

When your husband tells you in the middle of your serious photo shoot to wave your arms wildly, think before you do it.  I guess you’d better just go to Pattern review for more detail- I can’t remember what I was going to say about this make!

    I had to laugh about this for a while and then I could finally concentrate on the blouse. Very cute and I really like the butterfly patten. But the fish is stealing your limelight!

    It was obviously your delicious top that the fish was after – nice butterflies and lovely colours

    There’s obviously something fishy going on here! (I couldn’t resist). Ha!

    Nice make. I envy your wardrobe.

    Your camera man certainly had the sound track from Jaws in his head but he must have a very avant-garde view of life being married to a movie buff.

    Your husband sounds awesome. Why am I not surprised that there’s more of this type of humour in your household? Top looks great too.

    It took me so long to realize that there isn’t a big fish boat there. Also, that fabric is darling.

    Bwahaha! Is that the beautiful Hartwell lake behind you? I hear there is a catfish the size of a volkswagen bus that swims around in there.

      So close! We stayed on the Anderson side this time! I hear that fish has 3 eyes and chews tobacco!

    Very nice looking blouse! Great pics. The giant fish is hysterical!!! Lol. :) Where does one happenstance upon an over-sized fish like that? Is it a monument to fish?

      About 10 years ago the town had a bunch of loval artists do them all on a local theme. Now they are on stands all over and we find them so silly we feature them periodically if we see one.

        Nice! I like that idea. Go local artists!

    Are your fish always colour co-ordinated? Nice, where can I get one?

      There is an alley in town where they store the spares- come at night, bring a pickup truck!

    Men and photoshop, always a potent mix. My dogs often end up with their heads on strange bodies. Cute top!

      Ah, but I must defend his honor- no photo shop it was perched 10 feet in front of me and he just kept moving around!

    How great is that top? I want to make something shiney right now. Congratulations on having a photo shoot in a place with such a grand sense of community whimsy.

    Cute blouse! Too bad the photoshoot killed ya! Clearly the man wants you to buy some very expensive fabrics to make up for the big blue fish transgression in a noncommunity property state….Is that silk I smell…

    So awesome. I’ll borrow your cameraman anyday – mine only takes one pic and then hands the camera back to me, thinking that’s enough – I mean psssht, really ;)
