If I had that suit I would never wear anything else.

I really don't think he was the right person to rock that suit. I'm thinkin' it takes something that he just doesn't have to make it work.

Darker hair and less chin, perhaps? And maybe the opinion that citrus-suits are awesome.

Also guys, dont be mean to the boy for looking like he is not rocking the suit.  i forced him to MODEL.  In front of PEOPLE.  He was not very comfortable doing that.

Also he didnt get to keep the suit.

I am pretty sure you don't want to meet me ever because I will probably make you alter every pair of jeans I own. I have a lot of jeans.

Didn't your mother ever teach you that if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all?

ebony_willow, I envy your t-shirt-to-dress alteration skills.  That turned out beautifully!

Yeah, it's incredible!  Did you use a pattern?  If so, can we have it?

If not, that's... that's even more incredible (but it would make me sad, because instead of PROBABLY never being able to do such a thing effectively, I'd DEFINITELY never be able).

Ok guys, heres what I did, and it only took like half an hour (including the time gabbly distracted me).

I put it on and worked out how far down I wanted the tie-up bits to go, then put a little snip there so I could tell.  Then I took it off and cut out the ties and then put it back on and tied them up (I do this with alot of shirts that are too big for me).
Then I took it off, turned it inside out and hand stitched from wherei tied it down toi the bottom on both sides.

Done.

im not sure that made much sense at all though, so it probably doesn't help.

Besides, it looks to me like he did try to groom himself, it is just that with that length hair, for me at least, it has an annoying tendency to do those little curls near the bottom, can't get it to not do that.

See, no one else sees the need to be a giant meanie.

You should see his hair now, it is about 4 times as long and fluffy like a lions mane.  It's wonderful.

I think I understand what you mean, Jodie. I'll have to do something like this with the seats of all my jeans, except, well, it won't be tied and left hanging slightly open. So I'll have to find a sewing machine that can handle denim-stitching. And learn how to use it and what stitches I need.

Fuck it, I should just sever the stitching on an old, not-rad pair of jeans and just reverse-engineer how to do it, and then I'll re-stitch everything with custom measurements and then I will be the most stylin' S.O.B. on the face of the planet.

Besides, it looks to me like he did try to groom himself, it is just that with that length hair, for me at least, it has an annoying tendency to do those little curls near the bottom, can't get it to not do that.

You have that trouble too, huh? Good, makes me feel better about having that happen when my hair was that length. The problem for me right now is that my hair is at the point where it would look good if the back were just -straight- like the rest of my hair. Instead, it curls ever-so-slightly outward, and despite having been told it looks cute, I don't like it in the slightest, because it makes me look like I am 12 or something.

Patrick: Learn how to sew buttons. Then learn how to make lots of tiny uniform Xs all in a line.


This is hand-stitching. It takes longer than a machine, but it's all you'll ever need to know for alterations.

This is a bitch and a half. It takes longer than a machine, but it's all you'll ever need to know for alterations, and will probably give you carpal tunnel and arthritis.

fuck that noise, learn how to use a machine, otherwise the bigger type stuff will take forever. Of course, I know how to do the hand-stitching thing, but I'm so bad at it that I can't even really trust myself to sew on a button well. What I want to learn how to do is knit, damnit. It's cold in Maryland and by next winter I want to have a nice scarf to keep my neck/face warm.
