Description

The fabric is gorgeous jersey from my favourite shop, it’s 50% wool and 50% acrylic. The colour is similar to “air superiority blue”, this shade of blue was used as camouflage by being painted on the bottom sides of reconnaissance aircraft to make them less visible from the ground. It means that if one day I decide to fly no one could spot me from the earth. The pattern is Burdastyle October 2013, 112. More pictures on my blog

      Dear Livonet, the dress is not difficult at all, if you have have problems with front pleats, have a look at my blog where i showed the right consequence for folding.

    Awesome dress! The cut, fit and color is so flattering on you. And your backdrop of the church in Italy-so beautiful! I want to go back there someday. Meanwhile, you did a great job on this dress!

    Troppo bello! A te sta molto meglio che alla ragazza nella rivista, secondo me sono troppo magre, tu potresti sostituirla. Ti ho scritto nel tuo Blog, ciao! LUISA
