    I love your dress. I just got a lot of old burdas from my friend, and yours is not among them. I need to try something similar… (btw, I am traveling to BG quite often, and if you could recommend some fabric store it would be great…. thanks and enjoy)..

      you should give it a try, i think it would be easy to draft your own sleeve pattern that looks similar..

      :) thanks.. it took me a while to match all the lines, and keep the stripes horizontal (they still don’t match perfectly , but i’m fine with that)..

    The sleeves are cool! The blue striped fabric suits the dress so well, it looks wonderful with your yellow tights:-)

    Divna ti je haljina, sve mi se dopada! Rukavići su stvarno dobra fora, a materijal mi je ekstra! Te stare burde su stvarno dobra stvar, ja doduše posedujem samo neke iz ’90 (ugl bože sačuvaj). I čarape su ti preslatke.

      :) hvala, drago mi je da ti se svidja.. ima jos super krojeva u toj istoj burdi, moram jos nekoliko stvari da isprobam.. mozemo nekad da se nadjemo, pa da iskopiras neke krojeve od mene :) inace, umalo da odustanem od ove haljine, a da pretvorim materijal u posteljinu hehe
