macro monday

Recognize this macro photo? It’s scrap cotton lawn used as the inside waistband of blue flannel trousers made at the end of last winter.

Closet/wardrobe analysis has picked up a tad due to some temporarily cooler weather. Yeah!

Last week we had a cold front come through—thank you, Canada! Just in case we get more colder weather I spent the weekend airing out and laundering the coat closet.

Nice change of pace. 😉

Thus the need to get out the flannel trousers from last year, along with coordinating tops, although they were only needed for a couple of days.

And that’s how I discovered the navy flannels need some attention. Oh, goody. More ripping out.

Not a bad thing because I’ve discovered Louise Penny’s excellent series, and our library has a lot of them on disc. Nothing nicer than welding a seam ripper whilst listening to a good yarn. 😁

But I digress… Back to the flannels. I know I tried them on last year, but I didn’t actually wear them. Last week I did, and realised they need the waistband taken off and lowered, and I might also take in the side seams.

I deliberately cut the legs to be wide; however, stiff flannel might not be the best choice of fabric for a wide leg silhouette. Am still debating that one.

After all, one can always take in the seams. 🤣 😆 😁

  1. Autumn has truly arrived here in Bewdley, UK. The oak in my garden is starting to drop it’s leaves, and mornings are distinctly cool. Actually , they are cold. Time to air the thicker jumpers. I’m impressed by your advance preparations. Time to catch up I think!
