I know I was swallowed by a black hole for some time, but now I am kind of being spit out. The black hole was my family and my holiday is almost over. I have a lot of working waiting for me back in Germany, so there will be a lot of blogging too...
In this post I am showing the final leg-of-mutton dress. As you can see in the photos my staying home involved a miraculous lot of eating... Was great!
I put some plastic boning in but I had no caps - it is poking a lot when I sit down. I may as well remove it if it gets to unnerving or add caps. I basted the sleeves at the upper end a bit - they were too sloppy.
As you see I made the square neckline. I wore the other unfinished version around the house for few hours and the truth was that the fabric is too thick and too stiff. I was getting choked by my dress. So I cut it. So I won.
So some photos from Sofia - made on a rainy day, one of my first here.
A museum and the old palace. Small one, but Bulgaria is very small country - not that small as area but as population - imagine last time they counted 8 million. I mean that is something like double Berlin... Sofia is around 1,8 million.
Looking from the palace in the back you see the Vitosha mountain - it is around 2000 meters and I was skiing there since I was 6 years old! Sofia is slowly climbing this mountain...
So more in the next post!
