A friend of mine recently visited Benin, and brought me back some Dutch wax printed fabric! I used a pattern from Knipmode 3/2013.

      Thanks! Yes, I see you are a print lover – I think your new deer dress is terrific, and pretty happy-looking too! – actually I already ordered that pattern with my other wax print in mind, so don’t be surprised when you see me “copying” you (mine won’t have deer all over it though!) :-)

      Happy clothes are essential to happy people, I think! Thank you! I actually used my last bit of wax fabric to make another shorter ‘Anna’ which I’ve not had the guts to photograph yet (it really is pretty short…!) – it’s perfect for it – I can’t wait to see yours! You clearly have excellent taste ;-)

      Hihi! Thanks! Oh do photograph your shorter one! I’d love to see it – I bet it’s lovely in that print!

      Thank you! Yes, indeed, I am very lucky, not least because although this fabric is all used up, I’ve got another one! Haven’t decided what to do with it yet…

      Hihi! Thanks Liliv! I am really happy with this (despite little hidden faults) – because of my friend’s kindness, and that I managed to finish it and wear it in the sunshine yesterday (raining today), and it’s really fun to wear!
