The last pair of jeans ...

I'm a little tired of sewing jeans. This is the last pair of pants for Grant's SWAP. I didn't get a decent shot before he packed them to take to Melbourne. The fabric that I used for the pocket bag and fly bit comes from a shirt I made when I first started sewing again in earnest about twelve years ago now. I paid $30 a metre and that was a lot more money then. The fabric has held up and the shirt was worn by me for two years before I lost weight and passed it onto a more boobified friend, who is still wearing it.

With the house to myself for four days I am doing a lot of things. Today I cut out the white sateen dress for my SWAP and started on the embellishment, which I hope to have finished tonight. I've traced a couple of patterns and I aim to muslin one more dress for my SWAP. Perhaps I shouldn't have left it to now to do that. I have a backup if it fails. More tomorrow.
