Fabulous Betzina Quotes

I have laughed out loud at some of the things she says on this Craftsy pants fitting class! Here's what I like so far.

"I think sewers, we are eternally optimistic. We are having a wonderful time until we try on the pants, and then UGH, the party's over - they look terrible!" (I totally relate - one of my Mardi Gras dress posts is titled "And Now The Usual Depression")

"Most of us haven't seen light [between our knees and our crotch] in some time." (Regarding adjustments for full thighs)

"I need to get like an inch and a half, do you see, to cover that butt!" (Regarding raising the waistband)

PLUS, God answered my last post about draping. This morning I got another email from Craftsy saying they missed me and offering 60% off my next class. It's like in Flight (with Denzel Washington, have you seen it yet?) when her drug dealer says, "Keep your money, take the [class]."

On a tangent, Flight was a very good movie (the hotel room scene - hiLARiously acted), but I found it to be more about alcoholism than the cool thing he did with the plane. That was just the hook. Over, Under. (Prize to the first one who gets the reference...)

I still haven't done the classes but would like to do the tailored shirt contest on PR in March and could use the tutorial to learn how to do a perfectly tailored shirt. . . I bought the Craftsy class but haven't done it.

I'm glad your pants are working out well!! I haven't seen Flight but do want to do so.

I signed for the AlabamaChanin class, and may sign up for another class today. Fun!

Yay - we're all Crafty junkies! I love that I can watch them on my iPad, and I think they're better than the PR classes I've done - shhh.

I don't know if you saw, but Emmaonesock has the New Orleans/Mardi Gras silk print on sale now . Also if you put the code in you get an additional 10 % off. I've been stalking it since it came on at full price.
Since you are the only one I've seen online that has an interest in New Orleans Mardi Gras, I thought I'd let you know in case you hadn't seen it.
