    Lola floral dress

    A while ago I bought a number of fabrics online at budgetstoffen. I actually only needed one thing, but all stores were closed at the time for known reasons, so to avoid shipping costs, I bought more than strictly necessary.

    ♪ The cold never bothered me anyway ♪

    After I finished my blouse in sewing class, there were still two lessons left before Christmas break. I had already decided on my next project, but I didn’t really feel like starting it already. So instead I brought a project to class for which the pieces had been cut since summer, but for which I didn’t have the courage to…
