Suzanne Somers Likes My Dress

Who remembers watching endless reruns of Three’s Company?? (Go on, admit it. You can’t lie about your age forever.)

Three's Company

Today I met Suzanne Somers (pictured on the left, in her role as Chrissy) at an event for work at which her husband was being honoured with an award. Anyway, I was introduced to her, and she said, “I love your dress!” I was wearing this one that I made:

V8904

Dude, Suzanne Somers likes the dress I made. Fucking awesome. I am so not above being excited that a 70’s TV star gave me a compliment on my dress. I told her I made it and she said she used to make a lot of her own clothes, as, she said, “it was the only way to get new clothes.” She was friendly and gracious and the whole thing was pretty cool. (If you’re interested you can click to read more about this dress pattern.)

Funny to look back at the premise of the show by today’s standards: three roommates, one of them male, trying to hide the fact that they were living together because a single man living with single women would have been absolutely scandalous. Huh.

Right, so I’m thinking if I can attract one star’s attention with my handmade dress, there’s no reason on earth why it couldn’t be Lenny Kravitz next, RIGHT? Or maybe I’ll set my sights just a tiny bit lower to start, and see what’s possible with the guy that invented the Dyson vacuum cleaner — I have a big nerd crush on that guy. Because by god, who WOULDN’T love a man who’s made it his life’s work to invent a vacuum that doesn’t lose suction???

  1. I have never seen Three’s Company but that is one kick-ass dress. You inspire me to sew which is bad because my I am slap-dash at finishing touches… and they really count.

    • Believe me when I say I, too, am slap-dash at the finishing touches. The trick is to take slightly blurry pictures, and in the case of a real-world wearing, just stand as far back from other people as possible. πŸ˜‰ (I hadn’t even hemmed the sleeves yet when I took this pic.)

  2. I love your dress — it looks fabulous! I stumbled upon it when googling for images of this dress as sewn by others. I was surprised at how this dress looks better on lot of the bloggers than it does on the pattern envelope’s model.
