Tomorrow is taking in pants day

Saturday, June 29, 2013

Yup, I'm going to spend the day in the AC running in the seams of various pants that can be successfully altered. One pair I am going to canabalize for it's buttons, zipper and drawstring and toss the fabric. Sorry, no Goodwill donation when I can grab some buttons for future use.

While taking a break from selling fireworks I tried on a shirtwaist dress at target and a knit straight waisted one. Both were equally hideous. I have to wonder what my body, especially my waist will look like at a healthy weight. Who knows at my age?

At this point in my life I know better than to try on a shirtwaist dress (or knit) maybe when I lose the 30 pounds I need to... emoticon emoticon

    You have waaaaaay more patience than I do! (And skill!) I've gotten to a point that I won't buy pants even if it's just the length that is off. Too much of a hassle for me to take it in for alterations. What a lazy bum! LOL

    I know- my body is sort of unique, too, even at so called 'normal' weight I had a hard time getting things to fit.
Now I know to take things to be altered.
But I have always tried on 20 things for every one I buy.

    I hate trying on clothes! You're a brave soul to venture that--especially after the hot day you endured today. Relax in the AC tomorrow & simply enjoy your sewing!!! emoticon
