    it is a very nice blouse and a great effort. Do not be afraid to try a collar- try making little samples, until you are happy with the result- the real deal will feel very simple then

    That fabric is perfect for the shirt! It drapes so nicely. Great work!

    I see you are in Hungary, so am I, where do you buy your fabric? I’ve been to the Burda shop in Budapest but they didn’t have a big selection. Any recommendation?

      Too bad u r not in Bp… My favorite shop is “I love textil”. Not the place to go to when you have a perfect idea of what you want, it’s better to go often to see what they have: I usually find sg which “will be good for sg”… Ha! Are you hungarian?

      Thanks for the tip! I’ll have to check that shop out soon.
      No, I’m not Hungarian. I am American living in Hungary for my husband’s job. We’ve been here a year and will stay 2-4 more years.
      I love the food, wine and people here! Budapest is one of my favorite cties too. They have a Starbucks coffee shop! :0)

      (I’m sorry! I accidentally marked your post!! Sorry!!)

      I was going to say: nice to have you here! But when do you find the time to have a starbucks coffee with 5 kids?! :)
      P.S.: The shop adresses are on the net, I think.

      That’s funny, and I posted three times somehow…I guess the coffee is kicking in!
