Let’s face it, if these were made out of a natural fiber, they’d look great. Made up in polyester, they show every wrinkle and it’s impossible to press them all out.
My alterations proved to be quite successful. Trouble is, they’ve taught me that I don’t really like pants like this. It took two pairs to convince me, but there it is.
I took photos from all angles, and believe me, there’s no denying that “to the waist” pants are more flattering on me. There’s a nice horizontal waistband at my narrowest point on natural waistline pants. On these, it’s horizontal at a place that’s as wide as my hip. From the side, I actually stick out there. Yuck! There’s no clue that I actually have a waistline above that waistband somewhere.
I’m thinking I’ll take the lower portion of these and graft my self-drafted skirt on from the hip up.
I won’t be doing it this week, though. I’m headed south in a little while and won’t be back before Friday. I’ll get started on a plaid straight skirt and a black Franzi vest when I get back.
Happy Thanksgiving! or simply, Happy week! if you don’t celebrate Thanksgiving this week.
