Re: Red pleated skirt... that inspires a kilt

Hello, Thanks all for the compliments :- ) The wrinkles are unfortunately true to reality. Ironing will most likely not be enough, I suspect this is caused by one or several of the following: - textile not having been ironed before sewing (it did not looked that badly wrinkled) - machine being unada...

Red pleated skirt... that inspires a kilt

Hello, In Seb's topic, I've spoken a bit about an idea of pleated skirt I had in mind, but kept anything else for myself to not pollute his topic. Now that I've finished it, it took me one month before to get motivated enough to write about it : -D ( :hide: ) First, a description of it: it is a plea...

Re: Here we go - AGAIN !

Hello, Thank you for this reminder. I was thinking recently to create a topic about it, because I often have hard time (especially with certain members that I will not name) to read what they write, and eventually just to figure out what they were willing to write. The worst I've seen, is a message ...

Re: Skirts in Schools - No hope for boys

Hmmm, just turning the question of boys shooting photos for marketing a skirt to be sold to other boys. Who do you think would dare to be exposed that way to all other kids? I mean, this is already something to wear a skirt, it's even more a thing to wear it publicly, even more a thing to wear it pu...

Re: would you wear these sci-fi unisex dresses?

With the rope slightly lower (than my not-so-big-but-still-big belly): yes I could consider it (if stride is big enough)

Re: Pretty Skirts?

One year ago, I've been complimented by several people at different moments, about the flower on my trousers. I made it to repair a hole before it grew too much: before - after . When you know you can't repair invisibly, then you add something big enough to hide the ugly reparation. This worked nice...

Re: Dress, body and experiences of victimization

Facial expression is not necessarily linked to what people are looking at. Two months ago a young woman that I did never see before (same for her) did smile to me, because I did remind her a kind man she used to know. And even what people are looking at is not necessarily what it looks like they're ...

Re: International Men Can Wear Dresses Day

(...) You really would need a dedicated non profit or organization to sell such a message and do research on the negative impacts on boys/men growing up this society. Not to be cynical... but I'm just going to say I don't think anyone cares. Just having that kind of organization is not enough, it n...

Re: International Men Can Wear Dresses Day

I just thought about it by reading latest Grok's message: another way of supporting them, if you have in the outer part of your home a big and visible area that could be covered with publicity (ideally located in an animated street), to propose these specialized retailers (who we are happy from thei...

Re: Don't worry, most people know we're not trans

(...) There is nothing wrong with being trans. (...) We have no control over other people’s perception. This, I agree with. Why does it matter if people think that we are trannys? (...) We should just be happy and not worry about how other people perceive us. (...) This, I strongly disagree with, b...

Re: Streetwear Footwear

I will just say that I believe in the "unisex" when we can see both male and female models wearing the garment. Which is pretty rare and not the case of your first link.

Re: Sebs sweatshop

This is very clean actually, you are talented. It needs patience to be crafted, and being happy of the result is the best we can hope for :-) (I've not had that luck with my red pleated skirt, but I'll elaborate in a separate topic if I find motivation to write it)
