    Gorgeous dress! I love the wide neckline and hte bow at the waist – it looks so lovely on you. Brilliant work, especially for a first time effort!

    anything 1950’s style is a WIN in my book :-) and you wear it so well :-) prepare for disbelief when you tell people, “I made it myself!”

    So lovely! How did you make the top? Is that based on a Burda easy fashion pattern? I realy like the color too! Hope to see more projects of you soon:)

      Thank you very much, Sarah! :) The top is also based on 5A-B pattern from last year’s S/S Easy Fashion.
