Cathy's Photo Shoot from the Pattern Review Anniversary Party!



What a lovely night Cathy had at the Pattern Review Anniversary Party held at Elliott Berman Textiles yesterday!

The theme was "Little Black Dress" and, as you know, I worked hard and hurriedly to make one for Cathy to wear, though the end result was hardly little nor entirely black.  Who won the night's LBD competition?  You'll have to view the photos to find out!



I must thank Michael for escorting my cousin to the event while I stayed home and babysat Cathy's daughter, Simplicity.  Perhaps next year we can hire a sitter. 

As always, to see these photos full-size, just click any image and, in Picasa, choose the album name, and then, in the upper left hand corner, "Slideshow."  (Those with mobile devices can click here.)  I'm sure many of you will recognize some of the guests!



I may never sew with acetate taffeta again, but I think the results were worth it, don't you?

Have a great weekend, everybody!

  1. Gorgeous dress Peter! Cathy should get on her knees and thank the heavens above that she has such a generous and patient cousin as you. She clearly doesn't appreciate or deserve you.

    If you think that Cathy is going to spring for a babysitter for Simplicity next year, you're deluded! That narcissistic cousin of yours will suck you dry and steal your man to boot!

  4. Cathy is amazing in that dress-- and she looks so happy. Michael looked very handsome as her escort. I wish I'd been there.

  5. Very nicely done, Peter. I think Cathy looks rather Elizabeth Taylor circa 1950ish with the dress and hair.

    The dress is very becoming, the roses are a great touch.

  11. Really nicely done, dress, hair and everything. Every time I see a cute short haircut, I want to chop off all my hair - perhaps I need to get a wig modeled after Cathy's lovely hairdo. :)

  13. Bravo!
    And double that because you took it from a pattern and material to a sunning ensemble in a week!

  16. Such a beautiful job with that vintage pattern! Cathy looks fabulous. I attended a similar event near Boston yesterday, which was lovely until we all got high on tea and a fistfight broke out during the pattern swap. Deepika had to break it up with pepper spray. Or something like that.

  19. Looks like Cathy and everyone else had such a great time! I hope Cathy splits the prize with you after all your marathon sewing. And I just met Kathy Morrone and James Bosco on Wednesday! I'd love to make the next big event like this, sorry I missed this one.

  20. It was really lovely to finally meet Cathy Lane! But you failed to mention, Peter, that not only was Michael Cathy's escort, but also her personal photographer. Thank you to Cathy and Michael for treating me to a cab ride to the hotel!
