    Thanks that means a lot… lol I absolutely love that you think you don’t have the balls to wear anything I make. Haha my boyfriend is always telling me that he has NO idea how I get away with wearing half the things I do. Thats the beauty of fashion to me

    Hello- I just came across your lovely wife in the draped dress you designed. Not sure how I managed to miss it as I spend far too much time here. Your sense of design is wonderful. The dress is stunning and your care to craftmanship is to be admired. I’m still in awe of the setting the photos were taken in. I think I’d like to live there. I wouldn’t change a thing.

    Thanks for the comment about my quilt! The quilt was surprisingly easy just time consuming… and it was ment to be bigger but I have to be honest and say I lost my patience and actually it swallowed more fabric than I realised!! I know, can you imagine 40 years of marriage? Mind boggling!

    Dear Marlon, thank you a ton for all the beautiful words on the ruffly shirt! It really means a lot! I’ve just browsed through your studio and must say you have some amazing creations (and a gorgeous daughter:)! And if I were you – I would change the skill level on your profile. It should read: Expert! Thank you again and God bless!

    Thank you for your nice comment ;), checked out your creations earlier and have to admid: i’m sooo impressed, can’t decide whether your wife’s skirt is my fav or your draping project, which sounded so challenging…
