I found this beautiful picture of a young lady in a vintage dress and instantly realized that I want to make it into a cross stitching pattern (mostly because of the rich blue colors of her dress and hat). And so I did, though it took me quite a few hours. But it was worth it 🙂
The pattern is big (probably one of the biggest I ever made) and is recommended for experienced (and patient) cross stitchers.
