who knew it would come to this?

I don't think if you would have asked me what I would be doing today back in the summer of 2008 I could have predicted any of this.  In September of 2009 I was at the sewing expo in Novi, Michigan.  Mostly I hung out at the PatternReview.com booth but I did my fair share of touring around.  I met some really great people and throughly enjoyed myself.  Well....  it just so happened....   Islander Sewing System was coming out with a new pattern and since they had the photographer on site they decided to shoot the pattern photos at the show.  Oh you know where this is going huh?

Overall I think this is pretty cool being forever remembered for modeling the Baha #214.  I don't remember what they were asking us to do in this photo but it might have been look "mean" or "tough".  hehe   I just noticed also that I'm wearing a black t-shirt under my Baja.  Interesting since I remember taking my t-shirt off and second I don't own any black clothing!

Anyway...  I think it's fun.  You can see another photo from this shoot at the Islander site if you're really that interested.  It's in the banner at the top.

  1. Modesty panel for men? :-)

  2. That is AWESOME!!

  3. Modesty panel.. that's funny! In the other photo on the site I'm not wearing a t-shirt underneath but I'm more in profile.


  4. That's it, your famous so I need an autographed copy of this.

    Very cool..I was in a cycling catalog for several years. Yeah, it reaches a very, very, small segment of the population, but it was still cool to open it up and go "That's me!"

  5. You look as badass as it's possible to look in a poncho! Very cute. Thank you for sharing!

  6. you go, mr. model!!!!! that is so great!!

  7. Cool! And I might actually buy this one, since I've been looking for a shirt pattern like that for years. (It's hard to find one that's not terribly oversized.) I used to have a favorite pullover in that style. I wore it to death and have been looking for a replacement ever since. (This was before I realized I could make a pattern from an existing garment.)

  8. Nice! And so begins your path to celebrity...

  9. I am SO jealous. I was also at the Sewing Expo but I didn't get discovered. I think you have to be tall...

  10. How cool is that!
