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!
