Lucky pants

October 19, 2009

Last week was a clothing nightmare.  The strap on my favorite bag broke, my black skinnies from last year no longer fit, and embarrassingly only found this out when the crotch ripped as I tried to squeeze myself in.  To top it off I’ve made no progress on THE dress and I’m beginning to feel like a seamstress failure.

But I did do something.

I made birthday pants!  I went home this weekend to celebrate with my friend.  Typically I left the sewing part to the VERY last minute, which meant mid-night sewing in my mum’s kitchen.

The plan was to make Birthday girl some kitsch panties for her booty (obviously).  But a manic week at work, followed by an outrageously long train journey, meant I was sewing fueled on several gins and glasses of wine with a machine from 1974.  Three broken needles later (blame the tools), I made these!

Pants the front

Lucky lucky pants.  Bright and early on Saturday morning, I dashed down the street with the present in hand, and got a cold wet slap on my head.  Some bird, with the aim of Eric Bristow, dropped the most mortifyingly large shit bang on the top of my quiff.  Nice.
