Mi Amor.......
This is a quick and easy tutorial. I am going to knock it out, and send you some photos. Thank you!
I am 54 years old, live in NYC, and I watch the world's most beautiful and best dressed women EVERY single day. Because of you, I now sew several times a week, making your fashions which I give to some of these said women.
I just came back from Spandex World with 50 yards of spandex that I am going to make your leggings bikinis, and underwear with. I am even going to make myself a pair of your leggings to wear on my racing bike.
You are sooo beautiful, sooooo sexy, and soooo talented, you make me want to cry!
Keep it up
