Here's my Burda Magazine pose of my batik capri pants ... (meaning a pose where you can barely see the garment ... you just get a general "feel" for the "idea" of the garment.). I used a shortened version of Simplicity 7185, with modifications.
I just read a helpful tutorial on patternreview on taking better fashion photos. (I'm trying to find the link, but can't... I'll keep looking and add it soon). The author/photographer says to have to have your photo "tell a story", and to NOT have just a blank wall as your background.
Another tip: include bold accent colors ... thus the pink PINK PINK.
Daisy always wants to be in every photo shoot, and I'm forever shooing her away, but sweet girl that she is, gets to be in this one, getting her back scratched, of course.
This close-up shows how I changed the construction of the waistband area. The pattern calls for a facing with interfacing and zipper. Instead, I put elastic at the waist. I made the waist just big enough to fit over my hips if I wiggle into them, (the pants fit 1 1/2 inches below the waist, so it's already a bit wider at the top than a waistband that fits at the waist ... and I am pretty straight in the hip ... so I didn't need a zipper. Then I added a 5/8 inch casing to the top, and inserted elastic. There's only a tiny bit of stretch. It doesn't look like "elastic waist pants".
