Was it bound to happen? North American sewists woke up this morning and clicked on pattern review only to find a big bulgy package staring them in the face. Some guy – with “spamlamb” as a moniker – sewed up some underwear – so he says, and ‘reviewed’ the pattern, including a photo that lets us see just how well the ginch highlights his member.
I’m not really into sewing-porn first thing in the morning, so I scrolled down quickly. I checked back an hour or so later – curiosity getting the better of me – and saw 9 comments… some amused, some admiring how well he cut back the boxer brief pattern to a mostly-mesh hot pant, and some saying, um, some people might be offended. In response, he said that if we wanted more “profile” pics, we could link to his flickr. Those were the only pics on his flickr.
The review’s now been taken down, and I imagine there’s some chatter on the sewing boards. I’m glad more than anything that it was removed because he was clearly making a mockery of the site and of the very large number of women who are on it at any given time. I wasn’t especially bothered, but I’m sure some women were.
