Dear Lidia, as I am Russian too, I was able to understand that the "secret lightning" is actually "an invisible zipper" in English. Russian uses the same word for "zipper" and "lightning". I loved both dresses you reviewed so far. Very stylish! Thank you. Uspeha!

Lydia - it's a beautiful dress, and your review was great. Your English is fine. And Masha, thank you for translating "secret lightning" to "invisible zipper." I don't think I'll ever call it a zipper again, that's so much better!

Beautiful dress Lydia, thanks so much for your review. I have it picked out to make in linen as well. Hope mine turns out as well as yours. Don't worry about your English, its so great to hear from another sewing sister so far away. And yes I'll call zippers lightnings too now ! :)

This dress is beautiful and I love the fabric. There's nothing wrong with your English - our language doesn't make much sense anyways. :^) Does anyone know how I can get my hands on some of these Patrones patterns? This dress is inspiring.

Lydia, *Lightening* was a brand name for a zipper, many years ago here in Australia. They were sold in a cardboard packet with a clear front. I have seen the odd one around in charity shops.

"the "secret lightning" is actually "an invisible zipper" in English. Russian uses the same word for "zipper" and "lightning". I love this! Some company should jump on this translation and use it in their marketing.

Lydia, великолепно получилось! Я вспомнила эту ткань. Мне она тогда показалась очень простенькой, а в платье смотрится очень красиво. Superb! The Fabric has changed!
