Kat's Pink Shimmer Shorts
One thing I will change on the next project is I will not topstitch the pockets. Something about this fabric just did not work for the best of the shorts. Another thing Is the pockets are much too long on the sides-they almost run the length of the shorts.
I did learn that MrJanome is such a delight - it stitched out that design on this lightweight fabric like it was nothing. While I was stitching it out - I thought maybe this would be a project that I could run on E-bay to see if it might sell. It is a size 46 & I pondered IF I might could find a "nitch" of sewing large sizes. I have noticed that there are kinda a shortage of a variety of large size clothes in the stores? I also noticed what I had seen had Strips going around the body on the large sizes - like they were "accenting" the large clothes . I did not like what I saw.
Let's face it - gals are gals no matter what size we are & we all like to look our best & "accent" our positive qualities as best we can - not point to our tummies like we are advertising them.
But , on the bright side today was a Perfectly beautiful day! I got all of my chores accomplished - I got all of those 4 loads of tree branches raked & put in the stove & I even got my walk in this afternoon when I went to gather the eggs.
So, I can say that it truly was a Perfect day.
