I haven’t actually got the plague, but I do have a cold that will not go away. The worst thing about it is that I’ve definitely not been up to sewing. When you find you’re ripping out as much as you’re stitching it’s definitely time to walk away from the machine. So the silver trousers are only coming on very slowly. I’ve basted them together, adjusted the fit, and now I’m constructing for real. What with all the top-stitching involved I’ve not got very far. The front is about done but the back half is yet to be ready to attach. I made a male style fly this time. The one on the other pair of trousers I made feels wrong because they’re the opposite way round to my jeans.
I am optimistic for these. The fit’s still not quite right but I liked them when I tried the basted version on.
