    Thanks for your comment on my Coffee Date Dress! Nice pics on your profile too— I love all the brightly colored satins… like princess gowns!

    Thank you for answering! I hope you can understand my english…I´m very new at sewing but I already love it! I have just almost finished my first dress! It´s a black short one without “shoulder strap”, or what you call it;-) I have to say, you are already becoming my favorite here at burdastyle, you have the exact same taste as me when it comes to dresses, I´m sure that I will find much inspiration by your creations:-) And I´m also sure of that you will here from me again, cause I´m planning of trying to do this dress:-) have a nice day!
