Sew sew..............

It's been a long while since I did any dressmaking; I'd forgotten how enjoyable it is. I set to this afternoon to make a simple pair of trousers out of some very beautiful floral cotton I bought from e-bay along with a pattern for a dress. I originally decided to make a dress, but changed my mind just before cutting out, so I now have a pair of trousers completed bar the elastic, and the hemming. I'll enjoy the hemming as I love hand-sewing; the bottom leg hem is finished in a very pretty vintage blue bias binding just for something a bit different - will post a pic of that when they're completed. Have a zillion sewing ideas in my head now, ofcourse!
