Santa, I want a new Bernina, a new iron, and if I'm very good a new puppy.. Oh, you are one fantastic Santa. You did a wonderful job on your suit. Well done. Thanks for the giggle too. Made my day.

Wow! That's just fantastic!!!! While the North Pole can be quite chilly, your cotton velvet fabric choice is perfect for the mild NC temps. When can I submit my wish list? I've not been naughty (OK, a little bit, but my brother started it. :p) Great job!

And all of this time I thought Mrs. Claus made her husband's outfits! You did a great job. You are a most handsome Santa!

Not's only May, and now I have visions of sugarplums dancing in my head - actually you look like what a Father Christmas should look jolly and cheeful!

Great job! Have you ever sewn for Princess the Bunny? or would she object? It's great that you have the real beard and all!

Thanks for the bigger photo. GREAT suit! Sewing fur AND are a brave Santa! I just can't imagine the fuzz and lint that suit created. (*shudder*)

Thanks for all the comments. I wrote the review before I was ready to link to a photo. Now you can see a larger picture.

OMG, you have totally made my day with that thumbnail (and your profile pic, too)!!! What a great suit! I, too, would love to see a bigger photo (and pics of your other costumes). Glad to have a direct "in" w/'ll be receiving my list shortly (gotta beat the holiday rush, you know). ;)

You look great! I made this suit for my Dad (also real beard and belly!) two Christmases ago and left off that pouch. You'll be the hit of every event in that suit!

The first Santa sighting of the year! Great job on the costume and good planning too. If it were me, I'd be whizzing this up on 24th December!

So do you make the magician's jacket with the cool hidden pockets? I too would love to see a larger picture of your suit. With the real boots & beard, you really sound like the Santa Deluxe :-}
