SR: Ovo je jedna od starijih kreacija. Žao mi je sto na slikama ne može potpuno da se predstavi svo bogatstvo ovog platna. Na prvi pogled mi je delovalo bezbojno i bezlično, ali na drugi sam se već zaljubila u njega zbog reljefne strukture i čudne nijanse, koja vuče na sivkastu, plavičastu, i prljavo roze (kao da su najrazredjenije nijanse tih boja pomešane). Prvo sam bila napravila suknju,koju mnogo volim i nosim i koju zovem tortica-suknja, zar nijje jasno zasto? Kasnije sam napravila top s namerom da ga nosim na neku svadbu uz usku duboku suknju do kolena, ali na kraju je odjednom došla jesen, tako da sam nosila ovu kombinaciju. Iskreno, sad nemam pojma kako sam postigla ovakav kroj topa. Sećam se samo da sam se koristila tehnikom sličnom origamiju, tj. savijala sam platno da bih dobila oblik, i verovatno sam se podsvesno vodila motoom “što komplikovanije, to bolje”. Kad se čovek osvrne na neki svoj raniji rad u isto vreme može da bude iznenadjen sa kojom je upornošću i strpljenjem nešto radio, ali može i da vidi svoje greške, mane i zablude. I dobro je sve dok ih vidi. Ipak, sve dok smo svesni svih aspekata svog razvoja, ne moramo biti prestrogi prema sebi.

EN: This is something I sewn quite a long time ago. I am sorry that the pictures can not really present the full richness of the fabric. At first glance it seemed colorless and plain to me, but at the other I was already in love with it because of its structure and strange (non)color (something grayish, bluish and dirty-pinkish, as if the palest shades of these colors were mixed). Firstly, I have made the skirt, which I love and wear a lot and  I call it cake-skirt, it is clear why, isn’t it? I have sewn the top later with the intention of wearing it to a wedding with a high waist pencil skirt, but in the end fall suddenly started, so I wore this, more appropriate combination. Honestly, I have no idea how I got this pattern for the top. I only remember that I used a similar technique to origami – I bent the fabric to achieve a form, and I probably subconsciously was led by the motto “the more complicated, the better.” When a man looks back at some of his earlier work he may be surprised by invested persistence and patience, but at the same time he can see the mistakes, flaws and fallacies. And that is a good thing. As long as we are aware of all the aspects of our development, we must not be too hard on ourselves.
