Trousers Too

When mum had completed my tunic to a level that I could be trusted with, we then looked at a pair of summer trousers I'd started about the same time.  I can usually cope with a pair of simple pull-on trousers, but I'd managed to cut them to the size I would use for my top half, not for my bottom half (no numbers being mentioned here, other than to say I buy tops at least 4 numbers bigger than I buy trousers)  No, I have no idea what I was thinking, but needless to say, these looked like clown trousers.

My lovely mummy has waved her magic wand, and now they fit, so I just need to do the waist and hem the legs

Thank you mummy xxxx

The fabric was pre-patchworked, and I love it.  I had some solid in a similar colour so make a matching tote bag - I'll use it this way if I'm wearing the trousers,

But have the option of reversing it if I'm wearing something else


  1. I have visions of much sighing and eye rolling when your mum comes over ;o)

  2. Isn't it great having such a clever Mummy xx

  3. I hope she trimmed the trouser fabric rather than just filled you with pies!

  4. Yay! for mothers! And I agree with the bag strategy. Lovely as they both are, patchwork trousers AND a patchwork bag are a step too far! - or maybe I'm just getting old, lol!
