Today MPB got its first-ever upgrade.
As with most changes I make these days, my first reaction was to wonder why I waited so long. Regardless, during the next month, I'll be tweaking Male Pattern Boldness to make it visually more appealing.
One thing you'll notice immediately is that images are larger. This means no more clicking to supersize photos -- unless you want to, of course!
I've also added tabs to the top of the page. These make it easier to access popular content like sew-along links, Cathy photo shoots, videos, and more. You'll still be able to find all my old posts just the way you always have, via my archives in the right-hand column.
A big thank-you to my friend Mikhaela (below), whose excellent sewing blog, Polka Dot Overload, many of you already follow. Super-talented Mikhaela is helping me make these upgrades and I couldn't do it without her. Today I even got to meet Baby D, who is, I believe, the first baby I've ever bounced on my knee; I enjoyed it but he seemed to spit up a little.
In other technology-related news, as of today, I am the owner of my first-ever smart phone. Good-bye, stupid phone!
I'm finally entering the 21st Century and I encourage you to join me there if you, like me, are a bit of a foot-dragger.
I'm a native New Yorker and sewing fanatic! I started sewing in 2009 and today make all my own clothes using vintage sewing machines and vintage patterns, in addition to sewing for private clients. Welcome to the warm and whimsical world of Male Pattern Boldness, where the conversation is sewing, style, fashion, fabric, and more!
