Re: Stealth dress

...... Tip for high heels - pumps must be snug fitting - they should fit very snuggly so that your heel won't lift out. You shouldn't rely on ankle straps to keep you in your heels. (also ankle straps will cut your leg in a line which has the effect of shortening your legs - which defats the purpos...

Re: Féminine outfit but not skirt

Sorry for my poor understanding, what is an overall skirt? A dress? Hope, I think he was talking about a garment that does not currently exist. I believe it would have the top of a jump suit and the bottom would be a skirt, It would close in the front and zip all the way to the bottom or hem of the...

Re: One recurring theme...

Why don't you take the kilt-route? You can always claim some far relative in your family. A kilt is by definition masculine. I started with skirts in secret but I got a lucky break. My wife asked how a kilt would suit me (thanks Braveheart) so I bought a UTkilt. After some time I went out to let the...

Re: Summer skirt

I just started sewing and with every project, I got some experience added. YouTube is also a good source of information. I also bought a book that was very helpful. https://www.amazon.com/Readers-Digest-Complete-Guide-Sewing/dp/0895770261 But you have to do it yourself to become a better sewist. I s...

Re: Non Gendered Children

I was wondering about the changing room for no-gendered children. If there is no gender what can you change? Maybe the sign should talk about wrong gendered children.

Re: New, I suppose

Btw, not that it matters, but you're not a Buckeye, are you? I ask because, by education, I'm a Wolverine. I grew up in Connecticut so from that point of view you could say I'm also Nutmegger. Thanks for the comments! I'm a wolverine by degree (literally, in mechanical engineering) and employment. ...

Re: Funny Americana

Thanks Moon. Now we know the place exists and the story was not fake news. At least there was a bridge, almost payed with Russian money.

Why don't you free-lance for National Geographics? With that extra money you might be able to buy the Moonshadow yacht. ;)

Re: The Great British Sewing Bee

I'm also a self-taught sewer or sewist. Now I know why we have a Dutch saying that more or less translates as: self-esteem stinks (eigendunk stinkt). My experience as an engineer helps to cover the basics of sewing but instructions on YouTube show me the trade secrets of hundreds of years of making ...

Decade yes or decade no

A lot of people are busy right now with showing the world what happened in the last decade. Even well respected news sites and TV stations are doing this. The bad news is: the decade is not over yet. At some point people started numbering the years. In the western world it is accepted to count from ...

Re: Sightings "in the wild"

Café is used in French also for the place one drinks his coffee. More often Bar/Tabac is used or Bistro(t), but such mostly when one can have lunch/diner there also. Bistrot is a small Bistro. And just to wander even further afield, bistro is not French but is a Russian word meaning 'quickly'. It's...

..... Yes, same in Australia. The Dutch were the first visitors here and dubbed the country New Holland.
The same goes for your neighbors, New Zealand and that is Nieuw Zeeland in Dutch. Zeeland is a province in the south west of the Netherlands.
