Hi! This project gave me a really hard time. It is based on a pattern from burda magazine (issue 6/2010). It began in 2010 when I traced the pattern and cut the fabric but left it aside because the summer had already finished. In 2011 I began to sew it but it was a mess and left it again. I think that the basic problem was that this fabric was not the best choice for this pattern. In 2012 I finally finished it after hours and hours of handstiching all these trimmings.
I think that finally it's ok, but I'm sick of it after all this time I had it in my hands:P
I'm going to wear it of course, but it's a pity that the sewing time I have spent is more than the wearing time the garment will see.
