Unfinished projects? an injuried foot can be a great moment to stay at home and finish that project that has made you feel guilty for weeks… I borrowed my mother machine and finished this dress. I’m not really satisfied with the skirt, probably it’s the fabric that is too stiff. I love the sleeves fabric, a silk remnant that i found at the shop. I put elastic on the top of the shoulder, ‘cause i shortened the straps underneath and the sleeves kept slipping down :) I added a small rose, just to put something interesting… i’m undecided about putting a belt from the same b/w fabric. I need advice. (now i’ll go to take off shoes and rest, bye!)
