you have to laugh at your sewing mistakes . . .

Greetings all,
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

I do that one ALL the time!
I am not laughing.
I am most impressed that you could though.
Have a happy week.

Your so funny, what adorable fabric!

I say that if you could make it smaller and save it - you've done well! And they're not upside down to the wearer looking at them, right? x

It must have been the day for it. I had a sewing marathon on Saturday night, finished up at 2am *yawn*. I managed to fold down the waist band and sew it down and even put the elastic through and close it over the wrong way out - so that it is on the outside of a pair of pants recently, lol. Luckily they were just pj pants for one of my little ones . . . Love the fabric : )

As long as you can find the humor in it, Posie, it's all good. :D
