Description

I am a cyclist and fan of the “tour de France” this famous cycling race that you can see at the TV all over the word. The leader of the race is wearing a yellow jersey. This is the reason why I have organised a challenge on my blog. The goal was to sew a yellow garment in tribute of the “Tour de France”
22 friends joined me for this challenge
I have made a yellow summer dress using a luminous fabric very comfortable to wear and a small bolero yellow and orange. Felix my cat is my first fan
model of the dress : Burda May 2006

    Your dress and bolero are lovely and really suit you. I too am a cyclist and enjoy watching the Tour de France late at night on Australian TV. Some of my friends are in France at the moment following certain stages with their own bikes. I love coming to France and doing cycling tours and have loved every moment of it. Enjoy the challenge with your friends.
