    Thanks on the Necklace and skirt. hahah I need to go back to the skirt and make it fit me properly and then put some more pics up! I just wanted it finished as I had an unsuccessful Kasia experience.

    It’s good to hear you made progress and exceeded obstacles. The Phd. degree is definitely worth of effort. I feel bad because of my own laziness – after I finished college, I was so enthusiastic and had huge plans for my further education. Now, 4 years later, I can’t even force myself to read a book :-|. I’m really looking forward to go on trip to Switzerland. Traveling is my second major passion (after sewing) – it sometimes saves me from insanity. Living in Serbia is sometimes so frustrating, makes me feel claustrophobic from time to time. So, I hope that having two Xmases in two weeks will be as interesting as it sounds. Ana

    Hello dear Helene! Thanks so much for your comments. I’ve started knitting as you can see, because of your beautiful creations. They really inspired me a lot and I thought that “mmm… I’d love to knit very much only if I can make such beautiful garments like her ones…”. Thank you for inspiring me. You are a star!

    Ahh I just realized I never answered your post! I do traditional (hand-drawn) animation, and stop-motion. It’s a lot of fun. I’m actually working on a piece right now; it’ll be finished by the end of December crosses fingers. I’ve always wanted to try printmaking, but I never got the time to fit it into my schedule. It seems like so much fun though! And it must help with designing clothes, too.

    Dear Helene, I am opening a shop at the Dawanda’s (have been trying Etsy for a year now – it doesn’t accept any of the hundreds of cards I have). I sincerely hope I will not have obstacles with this one. The shop shall include childrens’ clothes and accessories for girls and moms :) Hope you’ll check it and give your opinion. It would mean a world to me.

    The US Navy, eh? I must try to find some American sailors to rip off … or get down to Camden market for the army surplus shops. will you be posting the pattern up here? You pre-Raphaelite shirt is very beautiful by the way. Love the colour: I really like teaming military/army clothes with something relentlessly girly and romantic.
