    This is me:

    I've done a few projects for TE's. Mostly I do repair work some modifications, referrals and contract work with some major players, but technical items only... very niche specialized. This was a very fun project and I'm trading out for some shop jerseys in exchange for marketing. There's no way I could charge for all the time I put into this but that's irrelevant because it was so much fun. I can't wait for a family pic of the whole family in their bike kit!

    I had no idea! Do you do outside work? I have a few jerseys that weren't available in my size, but I bought them anyway and need to get them altered (typically, a small down to an XS.) I could send a jersey that fits perfectly, so it just has to be close to that one.

    No worries; we can start a baby butt ruffle fan club!

    Irulan rocks!

    (and for the family pic, be sure to cheat the kid so that the ruffles show!)

    Years ago Irulan took the first cashmere sweater Thom ever bought me and turned it into a bike jersey.

    It amuses me to mountain bike in cashmere and it's still my favorite winter jersey.



    Although now I'm wondering about adding a full zipper to it.

    Veronica, can I snag that photo? I'm so glad to hear that you are still riding in that jersey.

    I don't want Susan or Jeff to get annoyed with me for shameless self promotion but you can email me off my weblink, facebook me through the business facebook page or send me a PM and I'll give you my email address.

    Regarding ruffles, mom let me know that the back of the jersey placement of logo is great as they carry her in their arms, backside out, a lot of the times. The ruffles should show like that too. Nichole and Chris ( mom and dad) do a lot of professional shots so I cant wait for pix.

    That's so awesome! Love, love, love!!!

    My sewing skills are limited, but could be better if I tried and found a class to take lol. My mom and grandma both used to sew for a living. Didn't know that about you here on TE. That's great.

    That is one lucky little princess!

    Thanks for sharing.

    These are amazing! Fabulous work Irulan!

    Watch out, you may have a business on your hands there. I could very well see our little Chloe in a kit matching her mom and dad's!!!

    Oh, that is so awesome...and that little girl makes my uterus twitch (good thing the baby factory is closed!). What a doll. I can't wait to see how everything looks on the real model.

    I love it! What a cute outfit.

    Also, what a fabulous way to reuse a sweater! It looks great on Veronica and I can totally understand how it would be fun to ride in cashmere.
