♫ ♪ Rhododendron
Once upon a time, it was very worm Friday afternoon and I had to go all the way to the Vina archaeological site to find my mentor and hand him my final paper.. He said that it looks like I’ve covered everything, that he’ll send me an email on Thursday if everything is alright, and scheduled my thesis defense for next Friday.. Knowing him, I thought that there is no way that it will be over that fast.. But, on Wednesday I had an email – see you on Friday.. I wasn’t prepared for that.. I’ve planed to have time to go through my thesis and sew a dress to wear for that occasion.. So I had two days for that, or better said one night to make a dress..
Luckily, I’ve already prepared pattern, fabrics and notions.. The pattern is 104 from Burda 02/2011.. Owl print fabric is a cotton blend and for the lining I used lightweight cotton.. This dress was very easy and quick project.. I only had to narrow the bodice for a little bit and I was prepared for the morning..
I was hoping that very busy print will take our conversation from my thesis (Geophysical surveys on Neolithic sites) on to something that I’m more comfortable with.. It worked, in the end we talked about owls and how many of them spend winter days in Kikinda (town in Northern Serbia)..
