russian foklore flaviour

Duesseldorf, Ger...






Burda 105 10/2007.
My goal was to use an original burda pattern to give it an russian folklore flaviour. It is completely based on my own idea. I used golden borders on the red woolknit. It completely underlined including the sleeves. The blouse has been bought extra for this dress. During daylight the borders aren’t that shiny, but artifical light let’s them shine. partially passament are sewed manually

Material Notes

mainly woolknit, lining is nevaviscon (antistatic), goldborders are brokat, passament with golden thread as well

    Very pretty! Really well done! These golden borders together with the red woolknit gives a touch of royal. Es sieht alles aus, wie gemalt… ein wunderschönes Foto!

    Dieses Kleid habe ich auch schon genäht und es zählt zu meinen lieblings Kleidern!!! Ich habe es in einem schwarzen in sich geblümten Stoff genäht mit dem Taschenaufsatz. Deine Variante ist auch super schön, besonders die Borte gefällt mir ;O)
