If Found Please Return My Junk .... I Need It!

The fabric was a bit of a challenge to sew, it frays like crazy so would approach the zipper seam differently next time…. Of course a freanch seam is tricky to use if inserting a zip so I opted for a standard 5/8″ seam with a little machine sewn turned edge. Next time I would definately use a Hong Kong seam (bound with an attractive bias) . Although very, very comfortable I have to say the lack of much mentioned ‘junk in trunk’ really will influence my choice in future. I’m more a maxi skirt gal and maybe best I stop fighting my body shape!


Junk In Trunk ….. Missing In Action!

Junk In Trunk ..... Missing In Action!

Here is a lush crepe viscose, begging to become palazzo pants. Well at least in my head anyway. I shall merely titilate with the fabric today ….. Let you prepare for the fact that even super experinced doesn’t equal having a dabnabit clue as to what suits my frame!!! I have no JinT so the positive is ….. Great fabric, great pants but more than dubious lack of backside!

Tomorrow you get to have a darn good giggle but I want to save it for now, am I prepared for public humiliation?
