I’ve been keeping up with the challenge but not posting much since I’ve been in reruns. Wednesday I wore my reversible wrap skirt which you too can make as I got the pattern from Craft Zine. How I miss that magazine.
Thursday I wore my Black and White Gingham Dress. And Saturday I didn’t feel that well so I stuck to yoga pants and my Jay Farrar recon shirt.
Friday is the day I want to talk about. I was so stoked to wear my new Simplicity 3850 pants. I had washed them since I wore them last. Generally speaking I don’t throw jeans in the dryer, but I threw these in hoping they would shrink up a bit. Over the course of the day they stretched out so much that by the end of the day I thought they were going to fall off and leave me standing in the middle of the office in my undies.
I’m pretty disappointed. I don’t know how to approach pants now. Do I cut them a size small? But what if I cut them a size small and they don’t stretch? Now i have to remove the waistband and take them in. If I take them in, will the continue to stretch? I really don’t know what to do.
