Friends, I never know what to make of Australians. They look like you and me -- well, OK, they're sexier -- and I can usually understand what they're saying, but they seem to exist in a parallel universe. It has something to do with being on the wrong side of the planet I think. They're....different.
Now, I am considered by many to be the Doris Day of sewing bloggers: wholesome and sunny with a latent streak of hysteria. But there are darker forces lurking in the blogosphere, readers, and some of them make their own jeans. Meet Don Pezzano!
If you don't already know Australian enfant terrible Don from his popular blog, Urbandon, you're in for a treat -- and some Jeans Sew-Along inspiration! Don is an awesomely creative sewist (and so much more) who will try anything.
Have a look:
If Thursday's interview with sweet Taylor made your teeth ache, I invite you to taste the bitter pungency of Don Pezzano.
Take it away, Don!

Friends, if you haven't already checked out Don's BurdaStyle studio, please do. Don is also a steampunk-inspired jewelry maker (this has nothing to do with Punky Brewster, I have learned) and his work -- jewelry, assemblage art, and minimalist handbags -- is available in his Etsy Store. Don ships internationally too!
