Description

As you might have read before I started a tradition a few years ago to buy a piece of fabric from each new country I visit (if the opportunity arises of course), and the old market of Tunis did offer such an opportunity.

This blouse is the result, it’s one of my 2018 Make Nine and my first July entry for Burda Challenge 2018.

    Oh, I love this top! The fabric, the style, everything….And I also try to keep the tradiiton you mentioned. I’ll be in Poland in a few days and I’m desperately looking for fabric stores around. so that I can squeeze a visit in my full program… By the way, I had found tickets for Jordan in November at an extremely low price and I was shocked to find out that they were sold out before I managed to book! But I haven’t given up…Maybe later….

      Thank you so much Elpida :) I like Poland, you’ll find fabric stores there. And don’t give up on Jordan, one day you’ll get there ;)
