Description

Well i’ve been looking at the new dresses from fran and jane (online and in stores in southern ireland). I love.their dresses but at over £200 they’re out of my league. Heres,my take on one of their’s. This.is burda 4/2004. I’m really into bows at the moment as well..this is the trial run but i like it.

      Thanks.,sorry about hitting the inappropriate button,. I do it all the time. Burda could.do with moving it. I made a few bows as i think one at the back of a dress.or skirt would look good as well x
