Mending is not my first love. I would much rather sew a new blouse with twelve brand new buttons than sew a button back on a blouse which is part of the reason for how the repair pile accumulated. The other reason was my epiphany around waistbands. Yesterday I...
... took apart the muslin of the purple print pants and put those pieces aside for refashioning along with the remaining yardage and then I lowered the waistband on three pairs of pants and fine tuned the crotch curve on another, added a waistband to a skirt, sewed the button back on to a pair of jeans, and shortened the sleeves on two sweaters. It was tedious and it took all day. I'm glad Barb was here to keep me company.
Talk soon - Myrna
Grateful - no more repair pile
