Finally, it was time to make Michael's shorts from the last fabric he chose for his summer ensemble, a liver-colored linen. (Can you think of a better way to describe this shade? I can't. Dried blood?)
Friends, despite my having made some cute knit cotton jersey underwear recently, I'm not a big fan of sewing knits. Maybe it's because I'm not really that excited about making the kind of garments one makes with knits: for men, we're talking tee shirts and underwear.
It's barely lunch time, friends, but I have already finished my second Jalie briefs. This time I made the boxer briefs, which were so much simpler than the regular briefs, or maybe I was just more comfortable with the fabric and the process.
OK, so I'm walking the dogs this morning, and we're strolling down a lovely block of brownstones (i.e., row houses) and I notice that someone has left a pile of books and fashion magazines beside some trash bins -- not all that unusual really.
