I finally got the photos back from my amazing photographer, Steve Anderson, who did the shoot in Nairobi four weeks ago. I’m thrilled with the results and have to narrow down to one iconic image for the Ladies’ 1958 Party Dress pattern cover, so I need your help! Please jump over to Facebook to vote (you don’t have to have a Facebook account, as the page is public). Comments left on this blog post won’t be counted in the vote totals, so be sure to “like” and comment on your favorite image over there. I’ll count up the total likes and comments on each image Tuesday morning (after midnight Monday Eastern Time) and declare the winner!
As you consider both images, take several things into consideration before voting:
- Gut reaction. Which one really “grabs” you?
- Dress details–which image better showcases the design of this pattern and would inspire you to take a closer look?
- The time period–which one best captures the 1950s feel of the original inspiration image but gives it a modern “riff?”
