Cynthia? No Chante.
A couple days ago I named my Photography Lammily, Cynthia, and I gave her a boyfriend, Kenya's World, Dwayne. He was a great height and his large head balances out her large head. They are both science students at the local university, but he is one year ahead of her. Giving her a boyfriend will keep me interested in growing her wardrobe. At the moment I am sewing all kinds of different things for her to help me figure out what works for her body type. I don't have any home runs yet, but I am finding some colors that work well on her. Today I decided she will be Harold's niece, that way Dasia will want to help me build her wardrobe, instead of giving me horrible looks every time I make her something.
Here she is in a yellow shift dress.
I like this soft yellow on her.
When I saw this picture, I started singing the Chante Moore tune, "Chante's Got A Man At Home". Then I remembered that Chante used to wear her hair pulled to the side just like this. THEN, I remembered that the man at home she was singing about was Khadeem Hardison who played Dwayne Wayne on the hit series "A Different World". Sooooo, I decided to change her name to Chante (shan - tay). In this picture she is wearing a sundress in a golden yellow. After I make her some cute sandals I will show a better picture of dress.
This top is a throw away. The material was too stiff to make the top I wanted to make. I wasn't trying to make a crop top, at all, but after seeing this on, I think she may be able to pull off the right crop top.
Here is a picture of the burgundy dress shorter than my original picture. I think I like it better short. So far I think the dropped waist works best on her.
Today I made her a shirt I am calling the X-ray shirt. She is house sitting for her uncle Harold and aunt Dasia, who are away on vacation for a week. She and Dwayne stopped by the house before heading to classes for the day.
