venerdì 18 febbraio 2011 in progress

Hi everyone!
I'm working on two dresses right now: a dark green wool crepes dress (view 1) and a stretch cotton, tiny stripes in blue and white (view 6)!

Two good things about them: first, I can wear a size 14!!! I had only 16...and always hat to resize the bottom part...!
Second, the pattern is just perfect...the dresses fit as a glove!!!
Hopefully I can upload some pics on the week stay tuned!!!

Hi Ladies, I'm so proud to present you my first coat!
Well, it was very time consuming!!!
I must say it was not THAT difficult! The only thing that gave me an hard time was the lining!
The fabric is a 100% wool from Max Mara, and I must say it keeps very warm!
What do you think?
Yesterday it was a great sunny day, as you can see!!

As you can see from the two ladies in the back, everyone here wears black or dark jackets and coats...and vintage is not I was kind of "exotic"!!!!

My kids!
