This is my lovely friend Chailyn. This beautiful woman just had a baby, and when I mean just... I mean her beautiful baby boy is only 2 weeks old. When she mentioned that she needed a dress for a wedding in 2 weeks that was post-baby-body friendly I thought... We all need something like that. I am in that same boat.... only I had my baby some months ago.... Ahem..
Anyway, she is in the wedding party and was told to choose a dress that was metallic. Gold or silver. She needed something that would be forgiving and comfortable, but dressy enough to fit in. She's also moving this next weekend, so this project needed to be a quick one. An easy trip to the fabric store and a couple of fittings later we had this:
I took Chailyn unawares this morning when I went over to her house for her final fitting. I knew finding a time in this new moms busy schedule to do a photo shoot would be challenging. Thanksgiving is this week and she is moving two days later... she's got a lot going on. So I took my camera and caught her without makeup and without her hair done. Sorry Chailyn. :)
Next week I'll be back discussing some post-baby-body friendly looks, and my favorite handmade items that i currently wear all the time!
