I got this fabric as a present, button from an old sweater and used some thread I had in my stash. It cost me nothing! Oh, and I`ve put the interlining (a fleece bed cover that I got as a present) for extra warmth. :)

    Nisam. jesu to oni krojevi koje uvećaš na svoju veličinu? Sad si me sjetila da i ja imam neke časopise s krojevima iz 40 tih..nisam ih pravo ni pregledala što se može s njima.

      Da, povećaš ih na svoju veličinu, izgledaju kao mala skica. S njih preneseš točkice i po tim točkicama nacrtaš kroj. Jesu ti iz 40-tih dot krojevi? Ako jesu mogla bi mi ih skenirat pa mejlat, mogu i ja tebi moje. :))

      Thnx, da, rezan u struku, A kroj. Dobila sam na poklon neku prastaru knjižicu sa skicama iz 1974 i imaju nekakve DOT krojeve. Jesi radila možda s tim?
