Have you noticed that some garments once sewn seem to leap in front of the camera, twirl around and get photographed in five minutes flat while others act like brooding prima donnas refusing to co-operate?
Take black. It sucks up all the light and refuses to show any details. Black garments are notorious for this.
White should be easier, more specifically off white with cotton embroidery in the form of a simple tunic. Nope. This baby wanted to just slink off and hide in my beach bag for the last blast of warm weather due this weekend. I made it stand still and be photographed anyway, by my good friend the tripod.

Made from stash cotton voile that ended up more transparent when made up than I expected..I am wearing a cami here for modesty's sake. This pattern, once I'd tweaked it has some nice lines and would look good in something more happy-hippy-ish.
Hey maybe that's why it's sulking..
Edited to add a close up photo of the top that I included in my PR review.
Also I have joined in on the bloglovin' whirlwind caused by the imminent demise of google reader. I've even got a widget. I'm all technological now.
