ahhhhh… i LOVE (<3!!!!) sudden italian weather changes!
after a week of rain and sadness… the sun!

…….. the summer, 30°C, blue sky, going to swim to the lake, gigs in open spaces, eveningsand nights spended on some hills beyond the stars with a guitar and a bottle of wine… ahhhhhhh…. THEEEEE PARADISEEEEEE!!!!

for these and other reasons, first of all, than “Maryy” is a fantastic dress, i decided to make it! but…i have no time/ wish to follow instruction or things like that! :P
so… the result is the umpteenth time in witch i sew an “a kind of…” dress!

Material Notes

scraps….as usual…

    For something made out of “scraps” (!) this dress is lovely!! I wish I was sitting somewhere warm in Italy drinking wine! This is a lovely frock and I too really like the recycled curtain for the white hem. Fits you nicely around the bust too – always good! Very nice Darl! x

    many thanks!!!!!

    i’ve thought too that the lace detail on the hem (which comes from a piece of curtain found in a trunk in the attic) gives an idea of “pureness”! ;PP

    ma… Bussey: è un vestitoda10minuti!!!! DEVI farlo!!! un pezzo di stoffa, un pò di elastico, misure prese a occhio… è un sogno! l’unica cosa un pò antipatica sono le spalline: avendole fatte abbastanza sottili, ci ho messo un sacco a rivoltarle (dove “un sacco” va letto come “qualche minuto”…). ahahah!

    ps: sorry to everyone for the errors in the text… i’m writing while i’m eating an ice-cream…. mhhh, summer… i love u!
