      hi well for the kaba (blouse) i used the afternoon tea top pattern and for the slit (skirt) i traced one of my other slits or you could use a pencil skirt and used the circle skirt pattern for the bottom :)

    Chrissy – you’re a star! That dress is just FANTASTIC! If I see you in the street, I’ll tell you so myself – that is if Pambox hasn’t gotten to you first. Your Mum will be very proud.

    It’s so pretty, it reminds be of a vintage Dior gown, with thick black and white stripes I fell in love with yesterday.

    I love it!
