Get Sexy in Sewing – Sarah’s story

So, I was going to do a story on “Does Sexy Sell in Sewing” and comment on how all the Pfaff marketing material spotlights an exotic woman in sexy sewn outfit.

Now, I know that works for beer commercials and cars and all kinds of things… but in sewing?

Yet, with the success of Pfaff, I can’t say that it has harmed them.

Well, I just met Sarah.

She’s a cute young gal who has been clubbing at night promoting certain liquors while she goes through nursing school.

I’m kinda shaking my head as I write this. lol.

Now she saw that as she’s been visiting with some of the strippers, people are selling them bikini’s for $45.

Now Sarah was like “What!?!

She tole me, “I know how much material goes into those skimpy suits and how much it costs.”

So she wanted to set her mom up who was home-bound with harsh arthritis to sew some cute bikinis and she’ll sell them.

So she comes in with a few trials she created.  And one problem was trying to get some elastic up the rear of the bikini bottoms to cup the buttocks appropriately.

And I have no idea.

Luckily, I shared the idea with a friend Shelley.

She was like… okay, reviewed her sewing and explained, for the bikini bottoms, you need to use a different stitch.  You have to use the three dotted zig-zag stitch.

That way there will be a nice smooth comfortable cover.

Now, I expressed some of my ignorance about the exotic dancing industry… and Sarah let me know in a PG-13 way what goes on in the industry and told a few stories.

So, I get the feeling Sexy does sell in sewing.

And sexy sewing sells well to a great niche audience.   –  What do you think?

What kind of audience do you sew to?

Leave me a comment and I’ll write back.




Unique Wedding Gift for the Purple Haired Bride

So, just had a mom who brought in her purple haired yet glowing twenty-something daughter.

She was giving her daughter a wondrous gift.

Instead of buying her daughter a huge wedding dress and Bridesmaids gowns… she bought her daughter a good quality but cheaper sewing machine.

Now as her alternative daughter wants a unique gowns, maybe something to go with her tatoos, she will learn to sew and make it herself.

Now, yes, that can lead to all kinds of problems… I know.


But both of them were brimming with smiles.  The daughter got unlimited lessons at Montavilla Sewing to learn her machine… and get started on a most unique dress.

I hope to get pictures of her wedding as I would love to post them here.

Best part, is this girl is going to learn an amazing skill that could last her the rest of her life… and has a joyous deadline to take some massive action and learn her new trade.

Now that’s a mother’s love. (devilish chuckle)

Many blessings to you all


P.S. leave a comment about the best wedding idea you ever heard of. 😉
