The pattern is actually really cool, practically only one piece, except for the facing. And the best part is: it's free! It's called Elena and you can get it HERE. I'm not sure it comes in English, but if you have the paper pattern, it's really simple to sew together. I used Fleece instead of Jersey, which explains the Panda bear effect a little... It also goes extremely well with the tulip skirt called Minu from the same site. Not for free, but 3,90 Euros for the download really isn't very much. You can find that one HERE. It's a VERY quick project to sew!

Oh and have you noticed my good-mood ring, too? I love it, because it actually makes people smile. Complete strangers on the subway, who happen to notice it, just start smiling. They might not look me in the eyes or anything, but at least they smile.
All seams were done with my serger, then I blanket-stitched around all the edges, just to give that little "hey,-this-is-NOT-from-your-cheap-chain-store"-effect to it.
More power to good-mood clothing - it can improve your day a lot! I had lost the courage to have fun with how I dress for the past few years and I am so happy that I seem to slowly rediscover a sense of humor and personality in my clothes... .
For those of you who are wondering what is peeking out from under the cape on the dress form: I am trying to turn an old pair of pants into a cool, draped top.
Stay tuned to see if it works out...
Panda Hugs to you all out there!
