Diane the Miracle Worker Seamstress - Clothing Designer Extraordinaire

I discovered a miracle worker named Diane who turned my buns of butter into buns of steel with her ability at making custom pants.   I learned of Diane’s seamstress ability this summer when I was looking for a way to get “Cheetah” pants.  You see, I really don’t like to wear business clothes.  Being the Chief Cheetah of Cheetah Learning, if I wear Cheetah pants, then I don’t have to wear your standard business outfits. But the challenge was, where can I get Cheetah Pants that don’t make me look like I’m working the strip in Vegas?  I had a pair a few years back that while “interesting” just lacked that special something.   And have collected others that just looked too much like lounge wear.   Good for those important business meetings in our PJs around the kitchen table, but just not the right look for doing a keynote to 5000 people.

I learned that you can send Diane a pair of your favorite pants – she will take them apart and make a pattern of them. Then she can make you a pair of pants just like them in whatever fabric you would like. (She also can measure you and create some pretty nifty clothes too). Since I was far away in Alaska and she was in Rhode Island, I opted to send her a pair of my favorite jeans instead. She found the cheetah fabric that worked extremely well and had my first pair of Cheetah Pants to me in September.

I wore those so much, I needed to develop a risk management plan in the event I damaged or lost the pants in my travels. So I commissioned Diane to make me three more pairs. Since I was near Rhode Island – I figured I’d just drive on over and get them. What a riot. Here is Diane with my pants.

She is incredibly talented, and very reasonably priced. If you want pants that fit fantastic in any style or fabric, drop Diane a line – She makes suits, jackets, shirts as well. Next she is working on a leather jacket to go with my cheetah pants – suitable to wear on my Harley for photo shoots.
