    Wow! so lovely and it fits you so well. did you have to do a muslin to get the fit right?

      Thank you very much. I did not do a muslin – to be honest I never do…I just keep my fingers crossed :-)

    Hi am crazy about this color!

    Have a jacket in the same color but it is wool.

    Seeking like crazy after such a material for a dress – but here in Germany online to find.

    Great dress suits you.

    Classic portable ever!

    Greetings from Germany

      Hi, Anita

      Thanks for you kind comment. This fabric I found in a British online shop – as I couldn’t find what I was searching for in any Danish online shops. But I must add that I’m ususally very fond of German online shops….I’ve found a lot of lovely fabric ‘in Germany’.
