One More Highlight!

on July 7 | in Sewing Inspiration | by | with 23 Comments

We couldn’t resist one more highlight from our Make It, Wear It! Challenge photo pool… Check it out!

Sewn by Barbara, Miss Pelicano

Barbara writes, “My dad always dresses very elegantly, as we in the family always say, as an English gentleman! Last year I found the pattern for an ascot, BURDA 3403, and finally this year I had time to make it for his 92nd Birthday on the 24th June. It’s a very easy pattern which you can make in a few hours and it’s very effective with the elegant pleats.” Barbara has more details about the ascot on her blog. We want to send Happy Belated Birthday wishes to Barbara’s father!…

    Wonderful ascot AND picture!!

    I am so happy that Sew, Mamma, Sew! chose to highlight this photo of my Dad wearing his new ascot. And I know my Dad will probably be even happier and proud to have been featured here!
    All your comments really touched me and I even got a bit emotional… Thank you so much!
    I don’t see my dad so often as we live in different countries so it was extra special to be with him on his Birthday to personally give him his present.
    I even left a little sort of challenge on my blog for anyone who wants to SEW & SHOW clothes/accesories for men. You can check it out if you want!
    And thanks SMS for the belated Birthday wishes which I will definitely send over to my Dad! And thanks for this wonderful opportunity! 🙂
