I am always trying to keep my shop items as reasonably priced as I can... after some tweaking, I have been able to reduce the price on all my farbenmix , Janeas and Sakura ribbons...and the postage on these is my shout- so FREE!

This will be a permanent price drop

farbenmix ribbons
other Euro ribbons

With more ribbons to come!

Go on, get yourself a little farb goodness!

farbenmix LORE

Pattern is farbenmix LORE, divided skirt ( aka shorts) and top.

Fabric is Marcus Bros Hippy Chicks range, from a Buy we did last year. I managed to mix 3 of them in here!

Trim is farbenmix ribbon and badge.

These are for Bon, and I made the second biggest size (_ _ .) so 140 ish?

The shorts go together very well, I love the cut of them. I must have traced off the pocket bag on the wrong size as it was a smidge short, but I managed to make it work. The back pockets lend themselves to lots of creativity in decorating them and also where you place them...I'll be more adventurous next time. These have a mock fly which I mucked up a bit ( I forgot how to do one and ran out of time!).

The top is super cute and goes together in about 1/2 hour! I really like their clever way of doing the the pic by pic tute they show how to bind the armholes before sewing the sides..clever. I'm going to do that with all my spaghetti strap tops now!

The top is purple COLORADO knit, trimed with Hippy Chicks.

Miss B ran off with these, and has kept them on for the day..AND requested another set. So, good a review is that??
