Antrim, Co Antri...
I bought this burda on ebay as it’s a fabulous issue. It’s in russian but i can make the items now by just looking at the photos. I saw a dress in this fabric on zaras website at £40 and i set about doing my own. I decided on the ruffle at the last minute and changed it from the pattern. I fully lined it in a lovely cotton with a slight stretch rather than use facings. I detest facings. The little crop jacket i have made countless times as i love it. I forgot where i got the pattern from until i looked at this magazine again. The faux leather was leftover from another project and i lined it with scraps from the dress. The handbag is one of my favourites. Its vintage and leather and such a great shape. I have included some of my mags for ellen hatteland to see and also my new pin holder!! The pin holder was an old toy my niece was throwing out. I removed the battery compartment and stuffed it some more. I love my caterpiller pin holder lol. Excuse photos i had to take them on my night out and i think you can tell i had a good night lol x
