Folk-style dress

This is a dress I made for my daughters mother-in-low. She loves all kind of folk-style clothing and was looking particularly for a sarafan type dress.
She chose the material herself and it was a little bit hard to work with, to be honest.  It was one of the tweed type materials but very dense.. But pretty, indeed :)
 I found the pattern in "Botique" magazine and made slight changes to the neck line. Also added a heightened belt right under the bra line on which I sewed on crocheted circles and hand made buttons made of a modeling clay material. Unraveled some of the material from the belt making fringe-type finish to it.
She loved it :)
