multi-coloured, casual or chic. We always look for the perfect one for
every occasion and a coverlock machine helps you to make you a new
individual top in next to no time. Today, we present a pattern for a free
flowing shirt with cap sleeves. You can decide at which event to show it
depending on the colour or pattern.
