Would you believe that a few short years ago I couldn't have identified a hibiscus if my life depended on it? Not anymore!
Michael's oversized hibiscus print blazer is finished and you can see him model it this very minute it by simply clicking here.
It seems like a lifetime ago that I draped this fabric around Michael and told him to smile or else. Who would have guessed just a few short weeks later he'd be hobnobbing in huge hibiscus like he'd been born to Lily Pulitzer?
Let it never be said that I don't sew for my loved ones. OK, I hadn't originally set out to sew this blazer for Michael but I realized as soon as I started stitching that it wasn't going to fit me and he (fortunately) loved it. Does that diminish my magnanimity? I don't think so!
