Hello, VLOGGY!



Friends, once again I am delighted to present my latest VLOG extravaganza.

You'll hear all about the week that was: the triumphs, the heartache, the joy and the sorrow (not too much sorrow this week, fortunately) -- all displayed in full-color and HD, and condensed to less than eight minutes.  So get yourself a big box of popcorn, put your feet up, and enjoy. 

As always, if you're watching on a portable device or wish to watch full-size on YouTube, click here.



Have a great day, everybody!

  1. I'm so disappointed; i had hoped to hear from Mary Porter on the vlog post - I'm dying to know more about her and have her meet all your fans...next time perhaps???

    1. Mary is working hard to overcome an unfortunate speech impediment. Please be patient!

  2. YAY! Love these vlogs! And omg love the 1940s vogue patterns! Can't wait to see Cathy in a 40s suit!

  3. For some reason, I find myself expecting Mary Porter to have a strong New Jersey accent. Must be the glasses?

  4. Yes, give Michael the new (and cool) shirt. Kathy would be fab in the suit -- got fabric?

    Peter, (and the Perfect Pianist) I look forward to your VLOG every week.

  5. This week's episode came early, I am so glad. Now I don't have to rush home. That might not be the right colorway for you, but the construction as always is flawless. Michael must be a "spring" and a terrif piano playa. I think Mary should do a "number". Can she sing? "The Very Thought of You" might be a good choice for her. Looking forward you your next project.

  6. Hi and thanks for another terrific vlog! I enjoy your writing and your vlogs. I agree the shirt is better on M, but I think it could work on you in a different fabric if you lowered the neckline a little. The neck seems to cut your neck off a little. Also, I just realized (I'm dense a little?) that you are Peter Rabbit. Love it! Brenda

  7. Love that striped outfit on the Vogue pattern as much as Sunday afternoon Vlogs! I can't wait to see these sewn up. Nice score on the patterns.

  8. Ooh! How much are you asking for that Size 40 dress pattern?

    1. I might list it on eBay, but I do like it if only for the artwork.

  9. As for me, I didn't have a wicked childhood at all.... but I made up for that in just about the era when that shirt would have been the very last word.

    Count me among Mary Porter's many admirers; she's a dead ringer for the executive secretary at my first job in New York, whose name happened to be Mary...

  10. Hi Peter, thanks for another really entertaining vlog. I have a question about the pockets on the shirt - are they useful? They seem very low for a shirt's breast pockets. Can you put your phone in it without it looking awkward or are they just-there pockets? I also have a Singer buttonholer but didn't know it could be used on other machines - just on a straight stitch?
    Greetings, Anne-Marie

    1. They are low-ish, but could certainly hold a cell phone (though probably not a rotary).

  11. My vote for the next project is the PJ/Norma Shearer outfit.

    Maybe you could introduce some of the other MPB staffers over time?

    Spud.

  12. Hi Peter, just love all of this. Maybe the size 40 pattern could be a prize. Much older sizing was different, so what are the measurements? Also, my paternal grandmother's cousin, also from Montreal, was Norma Shearer. I do have some of the look, as did my Grandmother. Genetics (LOL). Cathie, in Montreal....

    1. It's a 40 bust, 43 hip. I think pattern sizes went from 18 (36 bust) to 20 (38 bust) to 40 (40 bust) in those days.

  13. Make Cathy a suit! I also think it should be a giveaway of some sort.

  14. Oh dear - my comment didn't show so here it is again. Love your VLOG - Peter could you show us and tell us about the lovely icon on the shelf - its beautiful. Gemma (UK)

    1. I'll answer this question, since the painting belongs to me. It's by my artist friend Jean Cambell, part of a series of paintings she did on wood in the style of Medieval religious iconography. This piece is entitled "Madonna in Black" and includes the hand-written inscription, "A mother's love has no bounds." I bought the painting for my mom one year for Mothers' Day; it reverted to me when my mom died last year. Obviously, the piece is especially dear to my heart. Thanks for letting me explain it, Gemma.

    2. Thank you Michael that is just so beautiful and precious. By the way, my daughter and I both have a great devotion to Michael the Archangel. Sending you and Peter best wishes from Gemma (England)

    3. I had been staring at the painting for the last few videos too. The medieval icon style has so much calm beauty like a refuge for the eyes away from the violence of the world. Lovely painting, lovely thoughtful gift.

  15. Wonderful as always! Songs and sewing to make a Sunday special (and even a Monday). Thanks Peter!

  16. Love the musical intros and exits. It becomes very clear that when singing Broadway show tunes - the facial expressions are just as important as the vocal control.

    1. I think if you can connect with the message of a song, the facial expressions happen naturally (hopefully). And most of those tunes had meaningful lyrics.

  17. Mary is overcoming a speech impediment? Is there a 'My Fair Lady' adaptation in the works? (I can just imagine the Ascot Gavotte.)

    Guys, you performed two of my favorite Broadway tunes this week, so I was singing right along with you (though not as well). Great show.

  18. Thank you for your Vlog! You have a wonderful voice and you made me smile. I am enjoying watching your previous Vlogs and look forward to the next one! All the best to you.
