      Hi willow15, I just did a quick search online and I can’t seem to track it down. The internet is so different after 5 years. I fear it might be lost forever….

    Hey Jeffrey, Thanks for your comment. I hope you are happy in your nest. Thinking of making the Marilyn trousers for your sweetheart? If you are involved with the Burdastyle book, I might see you at the book launch party in November.. Best wishes Hélène

      You’re welcomed. The talented people in that room will make me feel out of my league, but I am excited to say that I am planning on being there in November. Hopefully I will see you there.

      Thanks Alden, will do :)

      Jamie (my fiancée) and I bought fabric at Mood Fabrics in NYC this spring, I’ll start working on the dress in May after I am finished with school for the year.

    Sorry it took so long to get back to you as school has been really busy lately. Anyway, thank you for the compliment on my “Death Jester” costume. As you know I had been working on it for about a month and boy was it hard. The pants were pretty easy but that jacket was a challenge. I don’t know if I will be ready for another project anytime soon as this one took so much time. I would like to make a vest as my next project but I think I will wait a week or two.

    Glad you like the sushi….and I agree with you that men should sew, my 10yr old son is starting to make a few simple projects….who knows…perhaps the next Jean-Paul Gaultier!!!

    Just got my copy of MIXTAPE and read your article “Guys Should Sew”. I thought you it the nail on the head! My son has yet to read it but I am sure it will be a hit with him as well. Well done!

    If you knew how i’d love to finally upload it ;) But there are still some problems with the lining and as I don’t have much time for sewing now it will take some time :( How are you doing with the coat?

    Hey Jeffrey! Enjoy the seminary this week. Is your coat ready for the occasion? Who is Brooke Wiberham by the way? My thesis is going slowly but at least I am into it and enjoying it now. Keep well!

    Hehe, you’ll do well, I’m sure! And it feels so good when the coat is finished! Hey, you’re doing a COAT! I guess that’s not the easiest thing to sew.

    That’s weird, because to me a pattern means security! Trust the pattern! Because someone has made his mind up about it, whos job it is to make patterns and I guess he knows what to do. So don’t be afraid ;)
