Ma Robe Sureau

This is my first make of a Deer and Doe pattern.  I love the way it turned out, I cut a straight size 42 and it didn’t require any modifications.  I did shorten the sleeves and add a cuff as I didn’t find the wide sleeves all that flattering on me.  The instructions/diagrams were very straight forward and I only had to refer to google translate once or twice. I even used my own handmade ceramic buttons.





Looking forward to making the Belladonna soon.

      Thank you! I spend a lot of time in the pottery studio, so I tend to make buttons with my left over clay. They are stoneware, fired and glazed.

    It’s really pretty! I love it, the dress, the fabric and the buttons! Wonderfull combination! I was just wondering… you don’t look like a size 42 at all, If I see your pictures I would figure you are a 38. Yet it fits you just fine. Are the sizes that small? Greets!
