I’m finally finished with the first pair of trousers for myself!
The fabric was found from a grate in Kangadungel. Someone had cut a piece from the middle of the fabric, leaving a hole from which you could stare through. It seemed quite odd but my heart was stolen by the colour of maple leaves in autumn. It works like quite a camouflage.
So I bought it. Secretly wishing someday they’d become trousers.
Since I didn’t have an overlock until today, I had to dress most of the seam allowances. It is a lot of work but I tend to see it as an opportunity to get better at seams that require precision.
Cotton, polyester, atlas, zipper, metal button.
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
