This fabric....it was love at first sight...Vintage sewing machines!! Fabric is Kaufman, Vintage Couturier, charcoal sewing and I bought it on Etsy. It wasquite expensivewithpostageconsideringthat this is stilla cottonprint.
When fabric came I was slightly disappointed because of the background color...it's supposed to be charcoal and charcoal is dark gray...what I see is light gray fabric.
Well...I planned to sew myself a full circle skirt but because offabricwidthand pattern position it wasn't possible. Instead one full circle skirt I'vesewedtwoskirts. One pencil and one bell skirt. I'm completely satisfied!

Pattern is from Burda magazine 10/2008 just like the Vintage Chic dress I made before. I just changed the collar.
Fabric is gorgeous soft wool (95%wool and 5%elastane).






New Sailor Pants and Complaining About Shop Policies

Image
I do not understand how is it possible for a serious internet shop, in this case from Germany, not to deliver to Croatia and even in Slovenia thoughSlovenia ispart of the EU. Well, they deliver to Romania....

Luckily,a friend fromEnglandoffered tobuyfor me the goods I wantand send meto Croatia.
It's about parts for blue suspender belt :) Blue Lycra arrived today, now I'm waiting for blue 2cm elastic for garter straps, 1cm trim elastic and  hook and eye closure.

Ne mogu razumijeti kako je moguće da jedan ozbiljan internet dućan, u ovom slučaju iz Njemačke, ne dostavlja svoje proizvode u Hrvatsku, a što je još luđe niti u Sloveniju makar je Slovenija u EU. No, u Rumunjsku dostavljaju......
Nije mi jasno. 

No, na svu sreću prijatelj iz Engleske ponudio se da on kupi željenu robu i pošalje je meni u Hrvatsku.
Riječ je o dijelovima za plave haltere :) Plava lycra stigla je danas, sad još čekam plavu gumu za kopče, 1cm obrubnu gumu i stražnje kopče.
