Horse and I, we're dancers in the dark

August 17, 2011

Darn, all the photos I upload seem to be so much less saturated and far more washed out when I post them online. I really need to get the photoshop on my family's computer figured out. I left my laptop in London so I could carry more stuff, and now I have to live with sharing someone else's computer. Sucks, just a little bit. I would love a macbook, I got to use a pro when I went away to an adobe training event from school, alas those times have passed.

Okay, so the shorts. I spent 2 days painting these horses onto pattern pieces I'd cut out and only 2 hours sewing it all together. Somehow the horses on the front aligned perfectly. My other favourite horse is the one with three legs in photo three. Used a burda magazine pattern with a few adjustments and an old sheet. Simple and easy.
