Since getting the hang of the sewing machine (sort of), I decided to give making a pair of shots a whirl, so I could knock off one of my resolutions in the dying days of 2014. These were relatively simple... apart from the fact that the instructions were in dutch, the pattern didn't match and I was sewing with old t-shirts. But look! Pants!
Boy, it's not until you actually make a pair that you truly appreciate the wonder that is pants. How those four points (and all those different shaped pieces) come together feels a little bit like magic.
They are wonky and hilarious, but I did it. He even wore them to childcare yesterday and no-one laughed at the uneven lines and different length legs. Bring on the Star Wars fabrics!
