Some Sewing At Last...

Yay, late last week I finally finished the first sewing project since last June: behold 'New Look #6106'.

I already wore it last Friday when I went out  for some pottling with Tif and we made quite the pair! <wink> A few days later I found a matching cardigan at Target (it is also green with white polka dots) et voila, a new outfit was born...

  1. Mooie rok! En helemaal af met die piping langs de zakken! Ik ben erg benieuwd naar de jurk die in de maak is, succes ermee!

  2. Wow, wat een leukje Marjan! Kijk, daar kun je weer mee voor de dag komen! Gave stof!!

  3. It just beautiful, I bet you look the Bees Knees in it! Love all the details...I'm sure there will be more lovely outfits in the future! Have a lovely week! Ada :)

  5. Gaaaaaf! :) Knap hoor al die details erop/eraan!


How wonderful to hear from you!
