My experimental version of Franzi..
made this out of left over indian rawslik.
i excluded the pockets..and used running stich to high light.

another modification that i did was to replace the buckle belt with a longer one which can be tied.. and looks grt..

as u guys would hv noticed.. that m really bad at button hole making! soooo sorry about that.. but m trying to learn from the how to at burdastyle..

and most important feature! the hand made fabric roses..
i love them! will be posting a tutorial howto about that soon..

    I love the colour combo and the topstitching, but most of all I love the roses. Can’t wait for the how-to! Are the buttons fabric covered or are they just more or less the same colour as the fabric?
