An, allegedly, easy-sew pair of elasticated waist trousers for my nephew have just been finished. Mum and I chose the material thinking it would be a nice lightweight cotton for him for the summer and would be a bit different from the usual run-of-the-mill boys' trousers without being too outlandish. Yesterday I thought they might be a bit pyjama-like (which would be fine with my nephew as he's never happier than staying in his pyjamas all day on a Sunday). Today, however, I fear there may be more than a touch of the Bay City Rollers about them!! Not such a good look. Although in the mid-1970's I would have given anything for a pair of tartan trews and a chance to see the Rollers in concert - neither of which I ever achieved.
The trousers were sewn on Mum's 40-year old brute of a sewing machine which I haven't had a close acquaintance with for many many years - leading to much confusion and a soupcon of swearing on my part. The damn thing nearly gave me a hernia just getting it downstairs it weighs so much. I must say though it is a lovely smooth machine to sew with.
Have just realised that today is my third blogiversary - blimey, time most certainly does fly! Once I'm back home next week I think I'll have a small giveaway to mark the occasion.
