you have to laugh at your sewing mistakes . . .
During my sewing marathon on Saturday - let's just say about 20 pairs of trousers & shorts turned out like the pair in the bottom of the image (sans elastic) . . . but one got through my speed sewing & not only resulted in the print being upside down, but, well, really . . . really . . . really . . . just wrong with a capital R!!
As i make clothes in stages when i'm in production line sewing, i overlock them in bulk, so this pair could only be saved by cutting the entire seams off & making them a size smaller (wasn't wasting that precious Japanese printed fabric!!) I couldn't stop laughing, i mean, SO wrong!! The children tried them on to parade my error, after 10 hours of solid sewing, it was deliriously funny. Tee hee, love Posie
