I gained weight, then a bit more. The tops I’ve made are doing OK, and we now have a uniform shirt for work. My trousers were falling apart and not up to the challenge of my ever increasing girth.
I needed them fast and didn’t want to hassle with fitting too much. Cue – more Style Arc Barb trousers.
I bought bengaline in black from Rathdowne Remnants. It is good bengaline but bengaline is always mostly if not all synthetic. Still looking for the seemingly non-existent stretchy woven fabric that is mostly natural fibres.
They look OK, they get worn every week to work. But are they are boring and I need pockets.
And a better mirror!
