Recently, I started working together with my niece, who is a fashion designer and with top model Jackie van Klaveren. I am very proud to show you the first results of our collaboration.
At the photoshoot Jackie wore a boatneck dress in size 04. Sizes range from 04 through 12 and we will add larger sizes in the future. Enjoy sewing!
