Hi!! This is my mother wearing a self-made dress! Isn’t she cute wearing this and having this glance saying: " I made this wonderful dress myself" at her face? When I see these pictures I can understeand why I love so much to sew, so she is my first inspiration!!! ! The pattern she used is burda model 08-2009-113 … she added a pleat at the middle and a fabric belt. I liked the model at the magazine but I think that my mother’s dress is even more pretty … she almost convinced me to try this pattern myself:) I hope you like my mother’s dress as much as I do
p.s. 1 This is also my new place to live, a real paradise
p.s. 2 She also added shoulder pads because she thinks she has very narrow shoulders and I can’t convince her that we are not at the 80s any more:P
