Hello All!!

My birthday is coming up this weekend and I have some fun plans!!  I just can't decide what to make/wear! We're having Summer here in my little town all this week and it's nice and hot.  The outfit I originally planned may cook me, So I'm rethinking.  I'm considering yellow, salmon or black and white. Dress pants? Hell I just don't know and as usual I'm running out of time! Here are some pattern choices (not to mention the fabric):

Eeni Meeni  Miney Moe,  I'll figure it out and let you know!

Anywhoooo - Just wanted to send a shout out to Mr. Gentleman Jim.  He's got a great website! He's a master tailor.  I've been watching his video's and the information is priceless!  Tailors do things a little different then the "home" sewer. It's really all about the insides and custom fit!  I had the pleasure of learning from a great Master Tailor/teacher here in the Chicago area in the past. Working with him and applying the techniques I learned has made a difference in the things I make. I don't normally do this but if you sew, give his video's a looksie!!  I sure do!

If I lived in GA, I'd take his class. But I don't. 

Help me out and give me some Birthday outfit suggestions!  I have almost every pattern made!!  

Talk Soon Carol


  1. Gentlemen Jim had me hunting down Ban-Roll and 4 part snaps!!!! All look like good choices, but I have terrible pattern/fabric commitment issues so I would be having a hard time too. Happy early birthday!

    1. I know right!! I found them!!! Today is the day I will sew my birthday whatever!! Thanks!


Yay!!! Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment!
