  28. Thank you for this chance to win !

    I like to sew for my kids, I already made a "robe à la Française" for my girl, for carnival.

    But for myself, I prefer 50's period for everyday, because it's the one that suits me. I have to prefer periodes where women had breast and hips, I can't put on dresses from period like Napoleonian dresses or 1920 dresses.
