Yet more Barbs

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!

    Is cotton sateen stretch not available in your area? 96% natural.

    Yes, stretch cotton sateen is what you need. Spotlight often has it. Still, just for work, bengaline is just fine. Wash and wear, and if boring, that really does not matter, for work – or it doesn.t for me, in any case. Looks like SA works for you.
