So Long, Sew-Along -- Peter & Michael's White Jeans Photo Shoot!



Readers, I am sad to report that the MPB Jeans Sew-Along Express has arrived at its destination.  It's been a great ride, but it's time to deboard (which is a real word, believe it or not) so I can clean the bathrooms.

Hey!  I was alerted to this recent New York Magazine article by a well-informed, fashion-forward reader.  I do try to stay on-trend wherever possible and can you believe those prices?

Michael and I had some time to spare yesterday so, with the aid of a trusty tripod, we created a brief photo montage.  Nothing Cathy-quality here, I'm afraid -- we're just amateurs -- but the wardrobes are my creation and it felt good to don summer clothes, even in a drizzle.



Of course, our collective jeans journey continues in our Flickr group, where a slow trickle of near-finished projects is underway.  Sew-Alongers, I hope you'll light the proverbial fire under your you-know-whats in the days ahead.  None of us needs another UFO in the closet.


Will we sew-along together again here at MPB?  Most likely.  I'll keep you posted.

Enjoy, everybody, and thank you for coming along!

  2. Inspiring as always! Although I didn't sew along (after the un-started disaster of my man's shirt), I thank you much for showing all the steps. Someday I'll get around to it. I guess I just like to rebel against the authority of the sew along.

  8. The jeans are fantastic! And I think you should bring out the tripod more often to get picture of you guys together! If I even finish my hubby's button down shirt, I'll tackle some jeans :)

  11. You guys are so adorable and funny! Peter, you inspired me to start sewing shirts for my husband (Peter as well :-)) - I always thought it was not worth the pain but he looks soo much better in my shirts :-)

  13. You make a very cute couple in your white jeans. I'll bet yours cost a whole lot less than retail and they look just as good.
