Enjoy!

  1. I have to get back into sewing as seeing images like this makes me hanker for things I just can't find. Thanks again for all your efforts posting these, even if they do fill me with restless yearning!

  3. uhh nice! especially the two first pictures, I like the big puffy sleeves with the vide skirt - it's kinda flattering and a bit silly at the same time :)
