Description

Among unique, world-wide known products, presenting pride and glory of Russia, a particular place occupy shawls from an ancient town of Pavlovsky Posad.
I’ve been dreaming about this dress for a long time. My mom bought this shawl when she was younger than I am today. I often took the shawl and dressed in front of a mirror. And just a few days ago I decided to sew the dress. It’s very bright and beautiful, and I really love the Russian style.
