I know in blogland, the 'best' photo you've got should start the post. It's like a newspaper or a magazine front cover, and it's got to be captivating and exciting and beautiful and shizz like that. As we all know, I'm way not that kinda person, nor blogger. Hence this extremely daggy photo of me trying to fit into ONE leg of a pair of trackie dacks. Why?
FOR REFASHION! First I found my McCalls 4260 had long vertical pattern pieces, which I could use to refashion these 'far too large' tracksuit pants for this week's Sew Weekly theme. And I did a little sketch how to alter the pattern pieces to fit the trackie dack fabric. You may have seen my results on Mena's Sew Weekly blog. BUT for those who can't wait for the jump:
Those trackie dacks turned into THIS:
|WHY AM I POSING LIKE I'M IN A GIRL BAND?|
|A LITTLE CLOSE UP OF THE GATHERING. TOO CLOSE THOUGH!|
|A BETTER CLOSE UP, BUT WHAT'S WITH THE FACE?|
|YAY! WITH LAYERS: IT IS WINTER AFTER ALL!|
