    This is so beautiful! Love the contrast detail on the collar and the edges of the dress.

      That sound really great! I’m planning a shirt dress in red gingham myself (the fabric has been laying there for ages, as always)… I think you might’ve kick-started me!

      Fala, baš se i ja spreman skombinirat dva Burdina kroja za novu haljnicu ala Chuck. Ovaj kroj mi je stvarno super, sa kosturom možeš radit nebrojene kombinacije, a za moje veliko dupe čini čuda. Fala bogu na širokim suknjama hehe. :)

    Preslatko! Volim kada vidim razlicite interpretacije istog kroja, zanimljivo je kako svako od nas drugacije dozivi isti snit.

      Hvala Mokosha, ovo mi je jedan od najdražih krojeva, pruža nebrojene mogućnosti. Totalno sam se zakačila na Petar Pan kragne, u zadnje vrijeme ih na sve stavljam!
      Btw, i meni se sviđaju tvoje kreacije. :)
