    Bienvenido Lala! Thank you for the nice comment on the Mermaid dress. I really love that one, and I enjoyed sewing it. I have to check out your blog, I’m always curious to see what others are doing.

      jajaja que genial que escribas en castellano! facto es en Italiano, en español es hecho seria así: “Me gusta el hecho de que escribas en castellano”

      chungo y chachi no se que significa.. en español varian mucho las “slang words”

      I love the fact of you learning Spanish. Please don’t take bad my attempt for correcting your writting and please feel welcome to do the same with my English!.

    thanks for your comment on my ball gown. I just thought hardly anybody likes it and maybe everybody on the recent balls thought the same like " oh what an ugly dress" …. best regards. lp

    Hello Lala, I am sorry, but I cannot enter the correct address for the bra page on wikipedia. I haven’t figured out how to use a virtual/universal keyboard; I can’t enter the tildes, umlauts, etc other languages use. That might be why the link won’t work. Anyhow, go to the English page and click on Spanish for a translation. Sorry about this. Nehmah link to page OR link to page

    Thanx for your comment on my chocolate brown bag. I didn`t line the handles. They are just made from two layers of fabric.

    Hey Lala,

    Well all I can really say is that dyeing fabric by hand is an experiment with mostly unknown outcomes. You can make a few guesstimates as to what will be the result. About all the blue tones not absorbing and the red tones making a pink out of your fabric, I’m guessing that the red is just a stronger dye and took up all that space on your fibers pushing out the blue which never really set in the fabric. Honestly, I have some days were I’ll dye 10 skeins of yarn and about half will be decent. Also sometimes I’ve found if I over heat the dye bath the dye won’t hold at all in the fiber, this happened with my second dyeing session with beets. I generally dye yarn but Threadbanger put up an awesome tut on fabric, Dyeing Fabrics Naturally Tutorial.

    Good luck, keep dyeing and sometimes hot pink can grow on you.

    Thanks for your comment on my one piece dress. As you asked, i made a “How to”. I actually throw away the pattern awhile ago… but I hope the How to can give you an idea how to make that dress :)

    Yes, you will love them more if you ever try white coats as well :))) Thanks for compliment. No. First, came the idea and then I chose the pattern. I could have choose several to adopt it but I choose a grey jacket from 09/2007. You can see the difference ;))
