You know you have a winner when…

Mr. Isis's Shirt. Photographing black sucks.

… he’s wearing it before you even have a chance to put buttons on.

I finished Mr. Isis’s shirt, and realized I have no matched black shirt-type buttons. So it is still lacking in buttons and buttonholes. Although Sewing World, on my way home, has a fabulous selection of thread and zippers (and every gizmo known to seamstress), they have zilch for buttons. Well, there might be a few novelty ones. Nothing shirt-worthy, anyway. But the plan is to trek out to Fabricland for kids’ Hallowe’en costume fabric this weekend, so I should be able to remedy that.

None of which stopped Mr. Isis from throwing it on, tucking it in, and rolling up the sleeves, and wearing it around the house the last several evenings. Β And he does indeed look a little “Dread Pirate Roberts,” if I do say so myself. >:D

So yeah, I think this one, at least, is a winner…

You may now begin to place bets on how long it takes me to corral him into letting me photograph him in it.

  1. Wow, you have a place called Sewing World by you? That sounds like Disney World for seamstresses, amazing! Well, except for the no button thing, hmm.

    And it’s definitely a good sign that your hubby is loving the shirt already. I think the worst thing is when you spend all this time and energy making something for someone else and you never see them wear/use it. Good luck getting him to photograph in it! πŸ™‚

    • Hee! It’s a good little shop (fabulous customer service), but focuses mostly on machine-embroidery and quilting. Not exactly the whole sewing world. But conveniently located, so I won’t complain…

  2. I love that he’s wearing it pre-button! Win!

  3. Congrats on the win! What happens when you try stealth photography?……

  4. Wearing it without buttons – that is a good sign! Perhaps you will need to find more fabric at Fabricland for a second one…!

    Well, I have no complaints against the Dread Pirate Roberts look, hehe!

  6. Big win! But I thought the real Dread Pirate Robers was retired fifteen years and living like a king in Patagonia??

  7. omg. I was in love with dread pirates roberts when I was younger! maybe that’s what David should be for halloween πŸ™‚ the shirt is fabulous and a fabulous victory! there’s no better feeling than making something that someone loves!

  8. Wearing it without buttons! Yeehaw – that’s a hit!

    I started thinking stealth photography, too, then saw the picture and lol, I have gotten a version of that before!

    I think it should be part of the package, you make him something you get a photo of him in it in return for all your hard work!

  11. Arrgh, Maiden you’ve made him a treasure ! Perhaps he will take Fabio’s, place on the cover (the no button, show the chest look ) of a new romance book. Beautiful work, Matey !

  12. Yay! That’s a sure sign of a winner. It must feel pretty good to see him loving it sans buttons.

    Well maybe it doesn’t need buttons? πŸ™‚
    this would almost make up for the henious crime of not-liking a previous shirt,. Noble wife award to you. Good luck on the photos.

  14. i’m going off ruggy’s inability to wear the negroni i made him even ONCE, so i’m going to say thirty six years.

    no black buttons?! how is this so?

  15. That is indeed the best response you could get!! Can’t wait to see it in motion !!
