I altered the trousers.
I took 1.3/4″ from the outside of each leg.
Then l had to redo the hem.
Alot of faff and hassle but l think MrK might have been right, they look better now.
I am going to wear these around the house as with all the messing about l’ve done with them, l don’t trust the seams.
I am planning in making more.
As promised heres some photos of the blackwork embroidery l’ve been
obsessing over enjoying lately.
Cashmere laceweight wool.
I think this one is my favourite.
The colour is really rich and it looks like velvet.
Heres what l have done with 2 of them.
Cards for Mothers Day.
I placed some interfacing behind the embroidery then a piece of black cotton slightly bigger.
I folded over the cotton to the front, like binding and sewed it down with the machine.
I attached them to the card with a little silver brad in each top corner.
Even though l am pleased with these l thought they would look better.
Right l’m off to watch CSI with Ted Danson, first showing in the UK, with abit of sock knitting or some more blackwork – l’m thinking orange next.
Thanks for reading, take care.x
