Description

I love challenges and had to try this pattern! My choose of fabric is stretch crepe from Jersey Fashion and I have to tell that was not an easy choice… I had to hand-stitch around neck, sleeves, hem and slits. Anyway I managed at last, and I’m happy with the outcome :)
Cheers and wish me good luck!
