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:

  1. Gut reaction. Which one really “grabs” you?
  2. Dress details–which image better showcases the design of this pattern and would inspire you to take a closer look?
  3. The time period–which one best captures the 1950s feel of the original inspiration image but gives it a modern “riff?”
Many thanks!
P.S. – A little behind-the-scenes trivia: We used two different versions of the dress for these shots. One was black, while the other was red. When voting is over, I’ll show the original color images so you can see!

    • It really has been fun to watch the comments rolling in on Facebook. There have been surprises and a lot of interesting takes on the two different shots. I’m looking forward to posting more photos from the shoot later this week!

  1. Jennie,

    I meant to send you a note on this, but life was busy. šŸ˜‰ When I tried hitting the “like” button, many different times and ways, Facebook would not allow me. It kept forcing me to a ‘log in’ page, which of course, I don’t have an account. I wasn’t sure if you knew this or not. I am using Google Chrome if that makes a difference.
