Quick Post?

I'm not sure if that's actually something I'm capable of, but I shall do my best!

First, here's a pic of the gray *&%@!! pants. I wore them today and they weren't nearly as uncomfortable as I thought they'd be. However, I won't be wearing them without a jacket, 'cause the waistband business is yuk! I've also decided that the "sits 1" below waist" is just not a flattering look for me. Next pair of pants I go higher or lower. And I've got patterns ready for both ;)

Second, thanks to a new fabric store (!!!!) I've overcome my frustration of the pants. I visited this store yesterday and came home and got right to work on a nice cotton blouse. So far it's looking very polished. This store just was just what I needed to recharge my battery. Do they have nice fabric you ask? Well, of course, or why would I be so excited! Good or bad I will quickly be known as one of the regulars. I realized this morning that it's only about 5 minutes out of my way as I go home from work. This could be dangerous. Here's the damage from Saturday. And you can read my review on PR for all the juicy details.

Lastly, a picture of my purple pants. (The ones I mentioned in the blog-e-o that were to big to hold up to the camera!) Surprisingly, I've worn them often. Who would have guessed that I needed a pair of purple pants?

Happy Sewing to all!

Hey Dana,

I don't wonder that you wear those purple pant's they look really nice and the color is awesome. Nice fabric haul, very, very pretty pieces and gorgeous colors.

Purple is good. They would look fabulous in spring with a lavendar top.

That is why I sew long skirts for myself. I have sewn slacks with waistbands and fly fronts but that was over 15 yrs ago whenI had a better figure. They fit, though. Now fast forward to 2009, and over 50 and I cannot for the last couple of years find a pair of storebought pants that are comfortable. I pooch out in the belly and have no butt and my thighs and calfs are normal. So if the pants are to fit in the waist, then they are baggy in the thighs and butt. Plus getting in an out of them are a pain. Skirts are so much more comfortable, and you slip in and slip out of them. In the winter, I wear flannel bloomers underneath and I am toasty.

Oooh, totally love that green print. I think both pairs of pants look great!
