Nice job, man. It fits her, yeah, but will she wear it?

Did your sewing machine choke on the denim or did you hand-sew it?

What selvage jeans did you sacrifice to make this?

Looking forward to seeing how YOUR skirt turns out----post pics!

yes, she will wear it, she has no choice.

the sewing machine did fine with it.

i mutalated some chaps jeans that i found at the thrift store. they had a 24 inch waist, so i couldnt fit in them. figured the fabric was worth 3$, so i bought them and have used the denim for patches and shit.

ill send you pics of my skirt, but i cant post them here. its privite shit.

Interesting, I was unknowingly quoting Hitchcock's MARNIE, if that is indeed the ur-if-you-love-me-let-me-go; and I am guessing that's who the Decemberists are quoting. They any good? I hear mixed reviews.

Wait, this thread is totally getting derailed. NM

The Decemberists aren't for everyone, but I love them. Great lyrics! I find the nerdy well read crowd enjoy there stuff, or people who like pirates
