I don’t seem to have much patience right now. It’s the spring fever I’ve got. I can’t wait to get outside and do things in the garden, or see the flowers, or welcome the humming birds back. I am currently overwhelmingly disturbed by the constant snow we are getting. I am DYING for spring. I am housebound with lots of pent up energy. I need something to take my mind off the world, and for today, it is sewing. Sigh.
I recently scored these Lands End dress pants for my husband at a thrift store for only $2.00. Finding his waist size is not difficult, but they always need to be shorted in the length. Remember when I hemmed my sons jeans? It runs in the family.
I am focusing on cotton dress slacks in this post. This information is applicable to both misses and menswear. I have another post coming soon that will deal especially with wool trousers, so be sure to subscribe to my feed so you don’t miss anything!
