A PS made of cream or burgundy silk will be a good option too.

Same here; sad really. I hope you were more appreciative than I (probably) was. Mom's rock, really..

I understand what you mean. Not my colours, though.

Makes me (almost) want to have children. Then common sense kicks in. But still, these pics make it more tempting than I would have thought possible!

I'll just echo what others have already said: pretty awesome thread! I know I may be pushing it here, but any chance you can post a pic of your lady in the final product?

Thank you, Lonneker. I´ll let her decide when she is eighteen.

Fair enough; understood.

Desalniettemin: prachtig verslag. Ik hoop dat zij er net zo blij mee is als al die kerels hier...

Hehe. Dat kan bijna niet.

one of the best threads on the forum


if I may add, for that Polo, you might consider adding some of that pink liner along the bottom inside across the hem and side breaks. I find the inside bottom hem, especially the back takes a lot of wear and tear and it can also be used to reinforce the side "splits".

Nice one NOBD (or Mrs NOBD..?!) – I admire your approach and love these mini photo-essays. Keep them coming!
