Hey everyone,
this is my first post since the blog has moved to wesewretro

Paris, is Fashion, Luxury, Haute-Couture, culture and museums... and this is where I am living (Happy me :-). This environment probably gave me desire to get myself more familiar with "couture". The true story: In 2006 I did realise that I didnt even know how to sew a button (shame on me), so I've started taking lessons. After serveral weeks, I couldn't wait to go to my sewing sessions and I bought my first sewing machine... I find it very relaxing in that crazy working life I have. Creating is escaping the world and offers passion. Creating is something very rewarding.

Very pretty. What type of fabric did you use?

I used some soft cotton. it s for summertime as the fabric is quite light

Love the shape and the darts at the waist. I love the way it pleats from the tops of the shoulders too. Very nice!
