A Fashion Spread: Shelter Island Winter Collection

A Fashion Spread: Shelter Island Winter Collection

Shelter Island Winter Collection

The girls begged us to buy them some fabric to make dresses. So we did and the following are the dresses we came up with.  It was a joint effort by the girls and Monica. One trivia about our boat: Luminesce carries two sewing machines on board- one for sewing sails and other canvas work  and another for just sewing for fun like these dresses. The crew had fun sewing these dresses in a few hours while other critical boat related activities and installations were in our captain’s hands.

Anna’s is in a sheath dress with a sloped round neck line and slight capped sleeves .
She loved playing with this scrap of tulle we got at the fabric store.  Finally, it seemed fun to try to blow it in the wind but this low budget photo shoot couldn’t afford a wind machine.
The dress is perfect for a Sunday brunch but yet comfortable enough for a ride in a dinghy.
Woe to me for working with these  models who had no respect for the stylist/photographer’s artistic directions.  Asked for a pensive look but got a mischievious look holding a chin while her partner prances around in some native dance ritual.
Can’t they just pose naturally? At least one got the idea while the other one will just have to do for now.
Always happy to include Cutip as a prop for any photo op.  Cutip, not so much.

  1. I love the dresses! Not so surprised that you have sewing machines on board. This is my first visit to your blog, after hearing about it through your FB post. Thanks so much for sharing your experiences. It sounds like you’re having a blast and living life to its fullest. I can’t wait to check back soon and hear more. Warm thoughts and hugs to you all!

    1. Good to hear from you Lisa! Yeah, we have to keep our industrious sewers busy. There is a sewing club in the Marina and Julianna is so bummed that she can’t attend bc she’s at school. Some things take priority over hobbies. I thought I sent out a mass email about our blog site, emails and so on but several have told me they didn’t know about it. Well, now you do. Say hello to the boys for us.
