Only seven days to go until we leave for Alaska.... I have to start sewing my pants soon as I only have one pair of heavy weight.
Bought a couple of daggy pairs recently and only need to trim the legs down a bit and they will be OK. Have even cut out another pair from some double knit I bought about eight years ago... top of the fashion then.
I suppose that is one advantage to being 'old' you don't have to worry about following the fashion. Actually I do follow fashion sometimes. Unfortunately by the time I start to follow them they are no longer fashionable. And if I am actually making the item then there is quite a high chance that it will be fashionable AGAIN by the time I get around to doing it.
If it wasn't for the upcoming trip then the 'proposed' ski pants would still be languishing in the proposed pile!.
