Just so you know, I’ve not been fiddling with the bag since last week without accomplishing *anything*! My olive green Almost Perfect Pants were done by Saturday afternoon, and I actually wore them last weekend.
That’s why I had to wait for them to go through the laundry before I could photograph them.
Belt loops were a cause of debate when I reached that point in the sewing process. I’m wearing a lot of belts or belt-substitutes lately, but I haven’t yet needed loops for them. I finally decided that belt loops would almost force me to wear a belt and they’d show if I wore the pants with a top on the outside.
So, no loops.
Oh! A funny thing that ties in with some of the topics I’ve read on the sewing boards lately:
I’ve commented before on the running dialogue that Mr H and I have on the way to work and home most days. Usually it is about the dress of people along the street. Today we were stopped behind a bus and some students were getting off and crossing the street. A gorgeous female student with a perfect figure wearing snug jeans and one of those baby doll tops walked in front of the car.
I was thinking “She sure has pretty hair” when Mr H said “I don’t know why a girl would want to dress in a top that makes her look pregnant.”
I told him that many in the sewing community felt the same way–at least those of us who’ve seen it before. It’s nice when Mr H and I and the sewing community can all agree!
