A picnic with Danielle

Added Jul 13, 2011

Hamburg, Germany






I made it with a very soft crepe like fabric that I found for 3€ for sale. I hated sewing this fabric. It never did what I wanted it to do since it was so strechy. Just the cutting took hours and didnt go very well. In the end the neckline turned out too big, which was not reversible. I tried to fix that with cutting a piece out of the back and keeping it together with a button. I like the result however.
