Thank you Jamie and Joyce for recalling the Bernina Party Through the Decades submissions in this wonderful article with a generous overview of designs and their inspiration sources! These designs didn’t fail to impress and I’m glad to be among them with The Black Mambo Mamba ! Speaking of which, what better time to get back to it and complete the possibilities to wear it?
The raindrops have been painted in metallic colours and have button holes for an ingenious make-over towards a more playful cheerful side! I had them already made when I took the first pictures but “someone” disagreed at the photo session, so that someone would better buy me a Bernina:D What do you think? Could I have done better if it had rained?;)
Another thing I like about this dress is that the neckline can be lowered or raised, front or back – in the pictures front is pinned with a brooch and back is lowered by unfastening the first pair of buttons!
Conclusions: buttons open marvellous possibilities;)
Ah! I had almost forgotten: blogged here !
new: metallic fabric paint
