Description

Based on a burda pattern.

Fell totally in love with the dress the first time a saw it and just waited and waited for a fabric to pop up and find me.

After a year it finally did and this is the result.

More pictures at my blog MbyM

(and guess what? I had to little thread and I wanted to wear it to a party so I ended up hand stitching the dress with the wrong color thread ON the party. Story of my life).

Thanks again to my dear friend, Amanda Olofsson for the pictures!

      Thanks! I’m going to put more peddles on it when I get the time (read: when I got the drive) for it. It’s gonna make it even more lovely :)

      I love the color as well. Both my toe and finger nails are matching (Didn’t mean for that, just a fun accident! haha!), so you could say I really got a hang-up on this mint green color! haha

      Thanks btw!
