    Hi, just curious, the book with the dolmans, is that the one from Victoria & Albert museum? If it is, that’s the one I was looking in too. I hope you make a dolman, they’re lovely garments and should get more attention.

    Hi Lauriana, thank you for your answer. Unfortunately I am delayed with making of Laurelle. I was totally focused on making of my Lydia variation I have cut the fabric for Laurelle yesterday and will try to start with sewing tomorrow afternoon and if necessary to finish it on Friday. I would like to wear it during the eastern. If I will have got any trouble, I will inform you as well. Thank you for your purpose. To bad that you cannot come for the fabric spectacle to Deventer, we will try together with Lilo to meet each other. It would be a fun. Anyway, a lot of success with shopping in Den Haag.

    Hi Lauriana

    I like your style very much and I LOVE your batik dress. It is really gorgeous. I should ask you for the phone number of your teacher ;).

    I saw that on 05.04 will be organized the fabrics spectacle in Den Haag. Are you planning to go over there? I do it every year twice ( each season ), in Deventer and Enschede and I just love it. The first one will be in the end of this month. I cannot wait any longer.

    This weekend I will try to make the Laurelle skirt. We will see how it will turn out.

    Hey there. I just saw your comment on my wall. One of these days I will get around to taking photo’s of the things I have made and putting them up :) I’m in on the knitting thing as well since you sent me that link. I have already finished a pair of the arm-warmer/glove things… am now starting a second pair that are more colourful and longer. Still ahve to find Peter’s shops though… hehehe

    I wrote a question about Laurelle in the Help me section (thought it would be easier to find for everyone else who wants to try this pattern). No hurry though! I thought my English was pretty good until I started reading sewing patterns… My method is now “reading til I ALMOST understand”…. and then figuring out the logic thing to do…. but this I can’t beat… help will be appreciated if you have the time…

    Thanks for the luck! I’m going to need it. I have never handled such expensive fabric in my life. My mother is an expert sewer, so she is helping me with the bodice. Here is the link if you are interested in seeing the pattern. I can’t draft my own patterns, so I had to settle for a Vogue one, I think it had some great potential. I am making the short sleeved one, since the wedding is in the summer. It doesn’t look like much in the picture, but the fabric I chose is so beautiful. I’ll post pictures when there is some progress!

    Thank you for your opinion conc. my velvet jacket. It is very important for me to hear what other people think about my ideas and fabric’s or furniture’s I choose. Anyway I had no possibility to where this jacket until now and I hope that I’ll feel good with that kind of print. I liked this fabric so much, that I just had to buy it ( I am crazy enough to do it ;) )

    Hi Lauriana, thanks for your nice msg on my wall and also for the tips on books for blocks for men and children (well my ‘child’ is almost a woman now), I’ll absolutely check it out. My husband loves it when I make clothes for him, makes him feel special :) It was also great too se you as featurd member, I love your style! (I just became lazy and wasn’t so active lately, but being featured gave me new ‘schwung’).

    Thank you for the skirt pattern. It’s the perfect denim skirt, it’s classy! Love the yoke line! I’ll definately keep you updated on my progress, though it will take some time, cause I have to work in another city for a few weeks. I’m actually thinking of a way to bring the sewing machine to the hotel…..

    hi lauriana, thank you for uploading the skirt pattern. It is beautiful! this is so generous of you: it looks like it takes loads of time both to prepare the pattern and to write the instructions.

    Hey I’ve been to Den Haag – on a tour bus ride – (that’s wierd huh?). I went to Friesland for a week in the summer of ‘05. My mother’s parents grew-up there and I still have some family in Heerenveen and other little towns. There really isn’t a weeks worth of stuff to do in Friesland – but I had a great time. One day I took a tour bus trip from Amsterdam and went all over the Netherlands.

    hi lauriana: thanks for visiting my page and saying hi! i especially find inspiration in your work since you design so many of your clothes! they’re all so modern and elegant. i’ve modified some patterns, but have yet to try my hand at designing from scratch. it seems so daunting. i’m really impressed with your eye for line and fabric- keep up the great work :)
