The road was long but I ran it...

Hey Janet?

Yes Brad?

I've got something to say...
 I really loved the skilful way 
You beat the other girls to the bride's bouquet! 

 The road was long but I ran it, Janet 
There's a fire in my heart and you fan it, Janet 
If there's one fool for you then I am it, Janet 
Now I've one thing to say and that's Dammit, Janet, I love you...

 Oh it's nicer than Betty Munroe had,oh Brad 
Now we're engaged and I'm so glad,oh Brad 
That you've met Mum and you know Dad, oh Brad 
I've one thing to say and that's Brad I'm mad for you too...

Here's a ring to prove that I'm no joker 
There's three ways that love can grow 
That's good, bad or mediocre 
Oh J-A-N-E-T I love you so

Just look at those welt pockets :)
Who cares if they're only for appearance.

Janet dress:
Butterick 4443 with white trim along princess seams, buttons, collar added, and belt with shrink-plastic buckle. Back invisible zip. Much shorter!
Hair clips also shrink plastic
First: Belt, princess seams, fully lined dress.

Brad Jacket:
Based on Colette Negroni shirt pattern. Collar accentuated. Front yoke and welt pockets added.
Could have done with adding a facing to the jacket, but I was running out of time.
First: Mens clothing, flat felled seams, invisible hem, welt pockets.


  1. WOW They look amazing!!!!!!!!!!! Cant wait to learn how to sew!

  2. Sewing and fun-times certainly go hand-in-hand with you...love the post! Well done...J

  3. I so love everything about this! I am married to another Rocky Horror obsessive, (not that I mind joining in :) ) I'm going to show him this post as soon as he gets in.

    1. :) I'm glad you enjoyed it. I loved making it al - much more than the Boy enjoyed wearing it. Though he was a very good sport.

  4. I just can't get over how awesome these outfits are. I used to act out the Janet role at a movie theater a million years ago, so this brings back fond memories. Fabulous job all around. Kudos to you!!! You live out the expression "Don't dream it--Be it!"


I love hearing from you!
