    Beautiful! The Zebra detail really pops up and makes an unusual twist on a rather simple dress. Love it!

    Love it and the pattern could be one for me. One million dollar question: Which pattern did you use? :-)

      You are everytime wellcome. This pattern is from Simplicity out of the project runway row no. 7411 D5. This time I didn’t changed so much – I only made it shorter with “my” bow and the sleeves also (shorter and the caracteristic bow, it stops in the elbow).
      Best regards,
      Carola

      Thank you so much – the zebra was a leftover from the skirt I made. I like the contrast from black and white with this brilliant gaudy purple. It’s a thick filling inside and I think I don’t need a coat anymore, if I wear it now. Today we have 5°C plus and it is going to be 10°C!!
